Global audio visual design company Consultancy Team UK has partnered with charity group Mercy Ships to design and procure technology, as well as install and construct the latter’s new floating hospital.

As part of its collaboration with Mercy Ships, Consultancy Team will design audio-visual technologies and infrastructure for the new 37,000t ship.

Once completed, the vessel will be the world’s first purpose-built floating hospital, which will feature a multi-purpose auditorium, multiple high specification meeting rooms, two decks of hospital facilities and medical training rooms.

The ship will also include a school and nursery on board, along with all other facilities available on a modern passenger vessel.

" … We have donated our services so that the charity can focus its resources on what really matters, the health and wellbeing of their patients."

Consultancy Team managing director Edgar Andrews said: “We first became aware of Mercy Ships at a presentation we attended at a cruise ship exhibition and were truly overwhelmed by the work they do. It gave us a great insight into the journey both the patients and volunteers were taking for this incredible charity.

“Consultancy Team believes in the principle of giving something back and our commitment goes beyond simply writing a cheque. We wanted to support an organisation that incorporated our company culture and values, and we found this in Mercy Ships.
