Capital Works Projects

Community 1st Cornwall provides a range of design, healthcare planning, project management and cost control resource to assist our partners in delivering capital projects. These range from straightforward window replacement, mechanical and electrical works to a full hospital refurbishment.

Community 1st has the same passion and pride in these smaller capital works projects as we would have in the delivery of new build facilities.

Community 1st Cornwall has supported NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly with a significant programme of minor capital works since 2009.

In the first year, over 20 individual minor capital works projects were undertaken, at a combined value in excess of £3 million. Projects ranged from re-wiring and re-roofing to more complicated extensions and refurbishments, providing much needed improvements to accommodation for NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly staff and patients.

In the financial year 2009/10, Community 1st Cornwall carried out another nine similar projects including clinical services reconfiguration, building services replacement, roofing, external works, window replacements and office rationalisations, at a combined value of £3 million.

2011 continued in a similar vein to the previous year, with a wide range of projects undertaken.

Community 1st Cornwall is well placed to support and manage our PCT partner’s whole estate needs, an area which continues to gain support from central government, and these works demonstrate how Community 1st is putting this belief into practice on a day-to-day basis.
