Cleanroom Design and Construction, of Hagley, near Stourbridge, held a ceremony to mark the completion of the facilities at Ventura Park Road, Tamworth.

As the principal contractor, CDC, in partnership with the Midland Fertility board of directors, fully designed, installed, commissioned and validated the extensive state-of-the-art laboratories within the new premises.

As part of this comprehensive refurbishment programme CDC also provided ‘front of house’ areas including new entrance and reception area, consultation and scanning suites, staff office and ‘break-out’ areas.

CDC sales director Steve Heyes said: “We are delighted to have delivered this project to the client’s satisfaction.”

Anna Kavanagh, business and quality director at Midland Fertility added: “CDC has played a vital role in helping us deliver this amazing facility which will significantly improve the environment for our patients and staff. We are proud that that we now offer one of the most advanced IVF clinics in the UK.”

The clinic, which will relocate to its new home this month, treats couples from across the Black Country. It is moving from its Court Parade premises in Aldridge to the new larger £3 million state-of-the art centre as part of expansion plans which bosses say will improve facilities for patients. It will open its doors to patients on September 8.

Bosses say key improvements will include more room for hi-tech incubation equipment and plenty of private parking for patients. The extra space will also allow the clinic to develop the range of fertility treatments on offer to couples.

It will continue to treat private patients and those funded by NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG). The service has 14 contracts with CCGs, including Walsall, Wolverhampton, Dudley, South Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and those serving Birmingham.
