Thurston Group is a finalist at the Offsite Awards for its Social Housing and Healthcare projects
Modular and portable building manufacturer, Thurston Group, has been shortlisted for two Offsite Awards. Their Tameside Hospital project is up for Healthcare Project of the Year, while their ‘Meanwhile Housing’ scheme for Be First London is up for Social Housing Project of the Year.
The Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust project saw Thurston’s deliver a brand new modular ward for Tameside General Hospital within seven weeks to increase the hospital’s critical care capacity during the pandemic. This project was critical to the hospital’s ability to support their region with ventilated bedspace. A project that would normally take up to 20 weeks, Thurston’s delivered the new ICU ward, extension and linkway within seven weeks.
Thurston Group delivered 92 modular homes on behalf of Jarram Falkus for Be First London on Cook Road, Dagenham. The local authority is under growing pressure to provide temporary housing for residents who are homeless or for those who are vulnerable and leaving care. Thurston’s sustainable, accessible modular homes were the perfect solution for Be First and highlights the benefits offsite can offer.
Managing Director, Matthew Goff, said, “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted and look forward to the event in September. Good luck to all of the other finalists! Being shortlisted for these awards reflects how our modular solution encapsulates all of the benefits of offsite construction while delivering against compliance, timeframe and budget.”
