2-storey extension to the hospital
This project incorporated the complete renovation of the Accident & Emergency Department and Day Surgery facilities, together with a new two storey extension to the hospital.
This project required great attention to detail, not only in terms of the specialist equipment and finishes, but also in order to maintain full operational status of the hospital throughout the 18 month contract.
Facilities provided as part of the works included: day theatre, endoscopy facilities, accident and emergency reception, waiting areas, treatment cubicles, nurses stations, resuscitation facilities, scrub up areas, consultation rooms, staff facilities and also new ambulance bay.
As part of the design and installation of these facilities, Hospital Technical Memorandum was in place – overriding building regulations and stipulating requirements for specialist anti-bacterial paint finishes, sealed light switches and skirtings, air testing of rooms prior to opening, specialist lighting, piped gases etc. All of these requirements were incorporated into a successful design, which has substantially improved the whole environment for both patients and staff.
