Bradfords Building Supplies
Bradfords Building Supplies – a member of the Builders Merchants Federation – has carried out wide-ranging works to support construction of healthcare facilities across the UK.
The company has seen staff from across its 43 branches nationwide pull together in unprecedented times to meet demand.
Works have included supplying materials to allow the construction of temporary cubicles in three South West hospitals to increase capacity ready for any surge in Covid-19 cases, as well as the conversion of unused rooms into isolation units and timber ramps for ease of access on a temporary ward at two other sites.
Forty key safes have also been organised to assist a local authority in the Midlands with increasing capacity for hospital discharges, and materials provided to create a zones in various South West and Midlands surgeries for the assessment of potential Covid-19 patients.
Bradfords also fast-tracked the opening of an account for builders working at the NHS Nightingale Hospital at Birmingham’s NEC, with the final signature on the account received only moments before a lorry from the contractor arrived to pick up the materials they needed as a priority.
