Wilmslow-based MMC healthcare building specialist, MTX, is celebrating receiving the Best Modular/Mobile Healthcare Facility Award and receiving the Highly Commended Project recognition at the Building Better Healthcare Awards.

The Best Modular/Mobile Healthcare Facility Award was presented to MTX for its single-storey innovative rooftop extension, delivered to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in 2020.

The 1,450m2 Interventional Radiology Unit was delivered in enviable timescales, thanks to modern methods of construction and has allowed Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to benefit from a state-of-the-art facility, serving patients in the South East of England. In addition, the project became one of the leading centres for Interventional Radiology in the NHS.

MTX also received the prestigious Highly Commended Project for the delivery of the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

The bespoke 2-storey modular building links into the existing hospital and utilises a brick slip façade. Completed this year, the project consists of an operating theatre, catheter lab, recovery suites, outpatients and diagnostics facilities, all necessary ancillary and a dedicated plant room.

David Hartley, Managing Director at MTX, said: “We are very proud to have received not just one but two special mentions at the Building Better Healthcare Awards. This is now the second year in a row in which we’ve been recognised.

“Both projects came with their challenges, especially as we delivered them during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the team successfully managed to deliver them to a high standard, and the accolades are testament to this.”
