Choose multi-bed wards or private rooms with en-suite facilities - in welcoming, fully equipped buildings

When you are providing ward accommodation for patients, you need to ensure the facilities are warm, welcoming and fully equipped with all necessary services. Refurbished modular buildings from Foremans are thermally efficient and well insulated, and can be designed to fulfil the demands of wards of any size. Buildings can be configured to provide large multi-bed wards or private bedrooms with en-suite, disabled-access bathrooms.

We understand the requirements of HTM (Health Technical Memoranda) and HBN (Health Buildings Notes), and your ward building can be designed to incorporate:

  • Nurses’ stations


  • Consulting and treatment rooms
  • Standard and disabled-access toilets and bathrooms


  • Clean and dirty utility rooms
  • Kitchen facilities


  • Linen rooms
  • Medicine rooms


  • Day rooms

Why choose ward buildings from Foremans?

  • Spacious column-free interiors enable your building to be configured with any combination of individual rooms and open-plan areas


  • Modular buildings can be completed up to 70% faster than traditional buildings – to meet the most urgent requirements
  • Buildings fully fitted with all services, including gases, data and phone connections and TVs


  • The exterior of your building can be tailored to your needs with a range of exterior options
  • Wards of any size can be created, including buildings up to three storeys high


  • Buildings can be stand-alone or linked to existing healthcare facilities
  • Wards can be fitted with secure entry systems



"We are very pleased with the building, the extension and the appearance. Foremans performed well on this project and were sufficiently flexible to allow us to purchase and extend our interim ward accommodation to convert it to permanent use. We have had a good relationship with their team and would recommend their recycled modular building approach to other NHS trusts."


Graham Maynard, Head of Capital and Estates at Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

"We had a need for a new building to help us modernise our service through the increased use of day surgery which would free up critical bed space for elective cases. We appointed Foremans for their ability to produce a quality building in a very short timescale." 

"Despite having to work on a constrained, challenging site, they have delivered the building on time and on budget. The quality is very good and Foremans performance overall has been exceptional."

John Stevens, Capital and Estates Manager at South Warwickshire General Hospital NHS Trust
