Derby Hospital - Catfoss

Case Study - Derby Hospital

Derby Hospital

In October last year, Derby Hospital approached us to help find a solution to their pending winter pressures. Modular was an obvious option due to the extremely tight programme and site constraints.

The wards were completed and handed over to Derby Hospital and patients were admitted from 9am that very morning. In total, Catfoss were on site 68 days following the installation of the first modular section.

Project Size: 1100 sqm, Single Storey, 30 Modules


In October last year, Derby Hospital approached Catfoss to help find a solution to their pending winter pressures. Modular was an obvious option due to the extremely tight programme and site constraints.

Following a meeting between Catfoss’ Management Team and the Hospitals’ Executive Committee, it was understood speed of delivery was essential for this scheme to be successful.

Catfoss prepared outline designs, preliminary programme and budgets within 48 hours of the meeting with the hospitals’ Executive Committee. Following a presentation of Catfoss’ proposed solution, an agreement was reached and Catfoss mobilised the very next day. Just 2 weeks later Catfoss began work on site to prepare for the new building.

As the paperwork was finalised, Catfoss mobilised the team and began the manufacture of the modular units. Christmas was cancelled as a very committed Catfoss team work through the holiday period. The wards were completed and handed over to Derby Hospital and patients were admitted from 9am that very morning. In total, Catfoss were on site 68 days following the installation of the first modular section. The “turnkey” package of works consisted of Architectural design, manufacture, site preparation, modular installation & specialist site fit out.
