MTX and Murphy Philipps appointed to build new operating suite at Luton and Dunstable Hospital

Early phase marks redevelopment of entire hospital site

MTX has been awarded the contract to deliver a twin operating theatre suite complete with a four-bed first-stage and two eight-bed second-stage recovery units at Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

The project is an early phase in the site-wide redevelopment of the hospital and will enable the existing theatres to be taken out of commission.

Each new operating theatre will contain an ultra-clean canopy and will be designed as the benchmark for which the newly-redeveloped theatres will be based upon.

The delivery programme is paramount to the scheme, with a completion date early within the New Year so as not to impinge upon the next phases.

The theatres have been designed by Murphy Philipps Architects.
