Turner Dental, School of Dentistry

Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s Hospital

Works included the new build of an extension and also a multi-phased refurbishment in fully operational and high sensitive areas of the children’s dental department on the second floor at The University Dental Hospital of Manchester.

Installation of specialist equipment including the mechanical supply and extract ducts for the 12 dental chairs were mounted on the underside of the structural floor and routed externally to the roof top where the new air handling and chiller units were located. The mechanical and electrical services constituted 40% of the project cost and were substantial installations.

Working closely with the client’s FM company, we maintained strict permit to work procedures, retaining essential services during normal working hours. In order to satisfy the client’s restrictions much of the works were carried out ‘out of hours’ either during the night or at weekends as deemed necessary.

Client: Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s Hospital

“We write on behalf of the Trust to thank the members of staff at John Turner who have contributed to the recently completed schemes for the refurbishment at Turner Dental Hospital. The two schemes were both very challenging projects. The quality of workmanship and finishes has been excellent and the feedback from the service users is very good and has made a significant improvement for both staff and patients. A large amount of the construction works was carried out at weekends and late evening to meet the programme. The Site Manager who managed the project from the start has been conscientious throughout and has assisted the Trust. He has also worked a considerable amount of weekends and late evening and he needs to be thanked for his services. The Trust has showed confidence in John Turner by placing additional packages of works to be undertaken and would be pleased to consider John Turner for works in the future.”

Our client’s responses

” John Turner has won a number of tenders at Edge Hill University and has been consistently successful in completing high quality projects, on programme and on budget. “

” I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team who were responsible for delivering such a successful project. We would especially like to recognise the dedication and commitment your team gave the project which was completed with minimal disruption to our hospital functions. ”

” The project has been a real success and this is due to the professional and well organised manner in which John Turner’s staff conducted themselves. There was excellent communication with a priority for safeguarding the pupils and staff at all times. “

” It is extremely refreshing to know that the enthusiasm, professionalism, dedication and humour is still available in the right proportions to make things happen in the construction industry. What is most pleasing is that at all times, the requirements of the Client and Church of England Pensions Boards as the end-user was paramount. Collectively, we have achieved completion on time, a building within budget and in some areas exceeded the client’s expectations. “

” Just a line to express my thanks and appreciation of your sterling efforts to secure the completion of this project within the agreed programme. I am impressed by both the attitude and approach of your organisation. Thanks once again on behalf of my colleagues and the clinical staff with whom you developed a true spirit of co-operation under difficult circumstances. “
