Children’s Ward, NHS Frimley Park Hospital
Extension and refurbishment
NHS Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey
Type: Extension and refurbishment
Duration: 40 weeks
Single storey extension and refurbishment of children’s ward to cater for patients and medical professionals.
NHS Frimley Park Hospital required an extension and refurbishment of some of its key areas. The project included an extension to the first floor along with the refurbishment of certain parts of the paediatric and teenage unit at the hospital.
We undertook a full strip-out of fixtures and fittings, including the existing mechanical and electrical services, to create a shell from which the team could work. Extensive M&E work was required, including the installation of equipment, installation of medical gases and piped supply systems, and drainage modification.
We refurbished the wards through installation of new partitions, suspended ceilings, doors, windows, and renewed floor and wall coverings. Fire protection works were also completed.
The project was carried out on a live site and given the sensitive nature of working on and around a children’s ward, it was essential to keep disruption to a minimum and uphold the highest levels of health, safety and hygiene.
The refurbishment created an extremely efficient clinical setting that caters for patients and medical practitioners.
