Collins has completed the £2 million refurbishment and fit out to the entire ground floor of 22 Worple road to house Fortius Clinic's newest facility. The facility will offer residents of Wimbledon and the surrounding areas a new outpatient, diagnostic and treatment centre with rapid access to orthopaedic and sports injury treatment.
22 Worple Road is a newly refurbished commercial development handed over by Collins earlier this year, on behalf of Janus Henderson Investors. Fortius had been looking to expand into the South West for some time and found the newly refurbished space to fit their needs perfectly.
The beautifully designed clinic has seven consulting rooms and a fully equipped imaging suite with the latest technology including: 3T MRI scanning, X-Ray and Ultrasound. The fit out also included creating a new independent entrance and impressive reception area for the clinic to welcome patients, as well as multiple smart waiting areas.
The MRI scanner and X-Ray, due to their size, had to be craned into the building through the roof. The MRI scanner weighs around 7.5 tonnes which meant the floor needed to be strengthened with steel beams and reinforced concrete slabs to support the weight. The MRI scanner also needed to be housed in a faraday cage made of non-ferrous materials to protect patients and staff from the magnetic field when in operation. These high-performance and complex facilities rely on advanced building and design technologies, which our healthcare teams experience of over 17 years helps us to manage and deliver efficiently and safely.
Collins is delighted to have been involved in the fit out of the facility which has allowed Fortius to make this important strategic step in their expansion. The high-end finishes and state-of-the-art equipment will allow Fortius to continue to provide the first-class service they are known for.
