University College London Hospital, MITU
University College London Hospital, Medical Intensive Therapy Unit (MITU)
Duration: 26 weeks
Refurbishment of existing University College London Hospitals (UCLH) ward into a specialist Medical Intensive Therapy Unit (MITU).
Following previous projects for UCLH, we were awarded a contract to create a new MITU including a Step-Down Unit, Sweat Room and Public Toilet facilities, alongside all other associated works.
Our selected project team had previously completed a Queens Square Wards Redevelopment project for UCLH in 2016, and were confident carrying out works in a hospital environment. The project schedule ensured that noisy works took place outside of the hospital’s busiest periods and that dust control was carefully managed.
The hospitals lobby area also remained live throughout the project, meaning alternative site access arrangements needed to be made. A new suite of mechanical and electrical service installations were required including ventilation systems, air conditioning, drainage services and CCTV.
The new MITU is the only dedicated unit in the UK treating neuromedical disorders. The specialist service treats approximately 150 patients per annum and houses a multidisciplinary team of neurologists, anaesthetists, nursing staff and therapists. The success of this project and our collaborative working relationship, has led to three further contracts with UCLH.
