Main Theatres Refurbishment Project

East Surrey Hospital

Logan Construction were delighted to secure this challenging hospital theatre refurbishment project, working in partnership with the Surrey and Sussex Trust.

The works comprised the formation of six new theatres, combined with patient and maternity recovery areas, clinical team facilities and pharmacy stores.

An extensive renewal of M&E services was undertaken, whilst ensuring continuity of the existing ‘live’ theatre operations, critical care and maternity units which were adjacent to the construction works.

Our primary objective was to maintain nine operational theatres at all times whilst refurbishing the existing theatres within a ‘live’ clinical environment.

Retaining ‘live’ operational services, minimising noise, providing dust and vibration control measures, maintaining defined segregations, which were reviewed on an on-going basis to facilitate rearranging logistics and work patterns to meet the client’s infection control requirements. This, in conjunction with ensuring emergency evacuation controls, undertaking timely commission testing and liaising with the clinical and nursing staff, were just some of the operational challenges undertaken within the theatres area.

Externally, the design of heavy duty scaffolding, together with a detailed planned logistical approach, was necessary to ensure that concurrent installation of new plant and services was achieved along with a decant and reoccupation strategy to move departments as the project evolved.

Given the sheer volume and complexity of activities, the development of an integrated team was critical to micromanage and validate the plans necessary to deliver the overall project.
