The project required the design and build of a new theatre and associated rooms within the footprint of the existing building.

The enabling phase of the works required the removal and relocation of ducting, electrical board and cables, water services and the demolition of existing walls to facilitate the construction. The enabling works were completed as Phase 1 followed by construction of the main works.

Critical HSE considerations were the live hospital environment and the precautions required to ensure that there were no issues. These included solid hoarding between the construction area and the hospital. Monitoring of dust, noise and vibration and close interaction with the facilities team and infection control team.

The project build was carried out in 14 weeks which included the commissioning of all equipment and the BCAR certification.
