Our brief was to redevelop the existing offices within the department in order to provide six new recovery bays for patients.  Now complete, these new areas provide revitalised clinical facilities in which the consenting, preparation and recovery of patients undergoing IR treatment can be processed.

In addition to the six new recovery bays, we also created a new nurse base and an accessible toilet.

Owing to the enhanced COVID-19 safeguards in frontline healthcare environments, each new recovery bay was fitted with sliding glass doors.  This physical barrier acts as a key infection control agent, ensuring the new treatment area is a COVID secure environment.

Works were delivered within a busy A&E Department.  As a result, robust collaboration with the Trust team regarding services isolations and shutdowns was critical.

Moreover, enhanced noise, dust and vibration controls were maintained to ensure there was no disruption to this critical area of the Hospital.  The importance of our continued monitoring procedures was exemplified by the operating theatre directly above our demolition zone.
