Hodgson Sayers, in Stanley, County Durham, works on Newcastle's Freeman Hospital
A SPECIALIST building and roofing contractor has carried out a £500,000 project to refit roofing at a North-East hospital.
Hodgson Sayers, based in Stanley, County Durham, worked on the operating theatre ward and cardio ward at Newcastle's 800-bed Freeman Hospital.
The hospital is one of the UK's main facilities for organ transplants, and Hodgson Sayers, which was founded in 1979 as a roofing contractor, sent a 13-man team to deliver the improvements.
John Sayers, Hodgson Sayers' managing director said: “This has been an extensive and rewarding project to work on given the nature of the life-saving activities that take place on both wards.
“We also had a team of eight working on the roof of the cardio ward to provide waterproof liquid plastic roofing in asphalt, and another five on the operating theatre who carried out a full roof replacement, removed the existing copper and fitted a copper felt cap sheet.
“Strong winds proved challenging at times, but the team is very experienced.”
