CTS are delighted to have attended the opening day of the Eastwood Park Training Facility, officially opened by HRH, The Princess Royal on 4th April 2023.
HRH spent time looking around each of the specialist areas, meeting with many of the key parties involved in the project and the tour of the training centre concluded with an official plaque reveal which will be displayed on the building to commemorate this special event.
CTS finished construction of the shell, core, finishes and infrastructure of the NHS Training Centre in November 2020. The training facility offers training in a variety of industries including healthcare and engineering and allows students to be fully immersed in simulated real-world environments, including a “live” operating room. The Falfield centre also has a medical gas pipeline system, three types of lifts, high and low voltage labs alongside a large decontamination lab, nine classrooms and a café. Staff say that more people will now be able to access hands-on training that they would not normally be exposed to other than in their normal working environment, usually a hospital.
Managing Director Jamie Dellow said it was "a fantastic day and opportunity to meet HRH Princess Anne. The Princess Royal gave a speech on the how it was important for businesses like Eastwood Park to continue to innovate with modern technology and we couldn't agree more. We thoroughly enjoyed the challenge to be part of such an important and innovative project at Eastwood Park and thank CEO John Thatcher for the construction opportunity and invitation to the opening. We hope to be involved in many more such projects like this in the future!"
