Congratulations to Bridgman IBC on completing a very special order for an NHS hospital in record time

A huge congratulations to our client Bridgman IBC on completing a very special order for an NHS Nightingale hospital in record time.

The whole team of 70 workers at Bridgman IBC spent all weekend working on an order for 116 timber door sets for the NHS Nightingale Hospital at the NEC in Birmingham.

It’s a job which would normally take four to six weeks but thanks to their suppliers and staff they turned the whole order around in just 48 hours!

Bridgman IBC, which is based in Greatham Street in Hartlepool, was appointed by Interserve – a multinational group of support services and construction companies based in the UK.

Bridgman IBC received the request on Saturday to manufacture the door sets and the whole order was completed and installed in a record two days.

Tony Phillips said:

“Together with our amazing suppliers we worked Saturday and Sunday and through the night to complete the project. We are extremely proud to be able to help the NHS and want to say a huge thank you to our staff and suppliers for their amazing support and effort.”

Andrew Moorby, Managing Partner at MHA Tait Walker, said:

“Bridgman IBC has been a client for many years. We are extremely proud of the work they doing to help the NHS. They are a fantastic example of how the North East Business community is pulling together to achieve great things in these difficult times.”

The company is a leading UK manufacturer and supplier of fire rated doors, door sets and glazed screens.

It predominantly works in sectors such as health and education and is providing door sets which are treated to kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria.

The NHS Nightingale site on the outskirts of Birmingham will initially have a 500-bed capacity which can be scaled up to about 1,500 or more if needed.
