The state-of-the-art 4300 m2 project condensed what is typically a three-year project into just 12 months through the use of modern methods of construction.

The speed of delivery for the build also allowed the hospital to play a more influential role in the wider NHS strateg as the Nightingale Hospital for the region.

David Hartley, managing director at MTX, said: “The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital project was conducted during the most demanding period the NHS had ever faced, yet the MTX team worked tirelessly to deliver the project on time, to the highest possible standard and with minimal disruption.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team, not just for this project, but for the work they have done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting a very stretched NHS at a time of need.

"This award is testament to their commitment, particularly when up against some very stiff competition.”
