A modular solution reduced on site build time by 6 months to deliver a new Acute Admissions Unit (AUU) at Watford General Hospital.

The new unit now enables consultant-led rapid diagnosis and treatment in a local setting to improve care and health outcomes for emergency patients.

“At a very early stage of the project Osborne added their experience and knowledge of off-site construction solutions to unlock a number of issues, including the need to deliver a significant construction project on a fully operational site within a very short timescale. If they had not been unlocked, the feasibility of the whole scheme could have been jeopardised”
