NHS Hospital Works

We have a wealth of experience working for the NHS, with recent projects including the creation of a new burns unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, the refurbishment of the main ITU and HDU wards, upgrades to the disabled bathrooms at St Joseph's Ward spinal unit, refurbishment of Micro Biology and Cellular Pathology departments at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and High Wycombe Hospital and the refurbishment of several maternity units.

NHS Fast Track Works

We completed the refurbishment and fit out of three new surgical wards for the Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury. The project completed in twelve weeks from commencement and included eighteen new wet rooms. We also recently completed fast track works which included the construction of a new 4 bed 6 bay Emergency Observation unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and the complete refurbishment of clinical areas at Barnet Hospital.

Stoke Mandeville Hospital - New Emergency Observation Unit          Case Study

This was a scheme to construct a new observation unit within an existing external courtyard at the hospital. It was particularly challenging as it was to be built in a land locked part of the hospital and could obviously not have an impact on the clinical teams.

The Existing space was overlooked on all sides by clinical departments and was only accessible through the hospital corridors. and despite design issues at the start of the project was delivered on time and on budget.

This project was extremely challenging for a number of reasons:

Access: The new ward is located in the middle of the existing Emergency Department and the site was land locked. Materials were taken through the hospital at quieter times and a full scaffold access walkway and temporary roof was installed to allow both personnel and material access for the external envelope.

Quality: The quality standards required for a project of this type were exceptionally high and we exceeded these through our own quality management processes.

Needs of The Trust: The surrounding wards remained fully operational throughout our construction and it was necessary to isolate our operations from that of The Trust, this was achieved by installing temporary solid hoardings to the adjoining corridors and sound barriers between ‘the site’ and the wards.

Supervision: We had an on site supervisor at all times to liaise with the trust and to control our works.

Barnet Hospital - Ward Refurbishment                                            Case Study

This was the first phase of a much larger ongoing project to restructure the entire AAU department in Barnet Hospital this work was carried out whilst the rest of the AAU was a live clinical unit. Due to our previous experience and expertise working in live clinical environments we were engaged at an early stage and were involved with the initial design and programming meetings to ensure that the project could be delivered to a very tight programme.We completed all works on the project following the design requirements of the trust and their external consultants using specialist teams of Construction, M&E, Electrical and Medical Gas personnel.

With some initial design issues causing minor delays we increased our workforce accordingly and extended our working day outside of standard working hours to deliver the project on time.

Challenges …

 

Access: The work area was located within the existing live AAU, all our materials were taken through the hospital at quieter times in full consultation with the AAU manager, the work itself also produced its own issues of not being able to produce any dust whilst carrying out our work duties.

Conflicts: The M&E & electrical works & wet rooms were all completed with no conflict with the AAU day to day operation or causing downtime on the Hospitals security or safety systems, a difficult task in its self but completed with no conflict reported.

Quality: The quality standards required for a project of this type were exceptionally high and we exceeded these through our own quality management processes.

Needs of The Trust: The surrounding AAU wards remained fully operational throughout our construction and it was necessary to isolate our operations from that of The Trust, this was achieved by installing temporary solid hoardings to the adjoining corridors and sound barriers between the wards.

Supervision: We had an on site supervisor at all times to liaise with the trust and to control our works.

Following completion of all our works the unit was immediately occupied to assist with the ‘Winter Pressures’ that the hospital were experiencing.
