Contract Arrangements & Project scope

Project challenges

Working in a busy Greater Manchester hospital during a global pandemic is one of the most challenging scenarios any trade contractor can face. Stringent lockdown measures meant that on-site safety and diligence was paramount. Our exemplary project and site management skills were critical in delivering the work successfully.


As Warden Construction’s preferred MTC electrical contractor, we were invited to survey and provide emergency lighting designs and costs for compliance with BS 5266 throughout all areas of the hospital. As a result, we were awarded a number of contracts ranging from £10K to £100K to replace the existing non-compliant lighting systems with new fully compliant self-testing, self-reporting emergency lighting in a phased manner across the estate.

Despite the potentially overwhelming circumstances, our invaluable 50-year industry experience saw completion of works on time and on budget, and to the level of quality demanded by the NHS.
