Shed named the grounds maintenance provider for Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Shed Grounds Maintenance has been chosen as the grounds maintenance provider of Chesterfield Royal Hospital by Derbyshire Support and Facilities Services Limited (DSFS).

The award-winning grounds and exterior maintenance contractors have been awarded the £80,000 per annum contract, which represents the Derbyshire-based company’s biggest ever single-win contract.

The Chesterfield Royal Hospital provides care services to patients across the region, as one of the area's largest and most sophisticated hospitals.

The site has extensive grounds and outdoor spaces, including numerous areas of amenity grass, shrub beds, hedge lines and internal courtyards, all of which form part of the newly agreed contracted works.

Shed’s Operations Manager Craig Clapperton has been working very closely with the Estates Team on site, ensuring the smooth transition of service supply.

Emma Morten, Estates Contract Manager for DSFS has expressed her pleasure at the services that Shed have provided so far:

“We appointed Shed Grounds Maintenance in November 2021 to maintain the extensive grounds at Chesterfield Royal Hospital following their successful tender. Setting up the contract with Shed has run smoothly and everyone in the team has been a pleasure to deal with.

We are delighted with the service their teams have provided to date, the site is receiving the care and attention it deserves and the results are evident. I have received really positive feedback from many of our internal stakeholders.

There is a huge sense of passion and care displayed by their teams, which is so refreshing to work with - I call them our Garden Angels! They are a professional, reliable contractor and I am proud to have them on board.”

Already, progress has been excellent in all areas, and the team’s multi-faceted efforts have brought the site back to life. Good progress has been made and the regeneration of these areas has created valuable places of respite for patients, visitors, and staff alike to enjoy.
