University of Greenwich

State-of-the art Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre offer specialist teaching spaces to provide students with the skills and expertise to become nurses, paramedics and midwives

As part of the University of Greenwich’s long term development plans, The Faculty of Education and Health required relocating from their Mansion Site to the David Fussey Building. ITC were appointed to transform the new location and to replicate NHS standard hospital wards in the form of clinical skills labs.

A safe and realistic environment provides a seamless transition into work placements.

ITC reconfigured and refurbished two floors of the David Fussey building, to provide a sophisticated laboratory layout and hospital ward space using blockwork, stud walls, a Skyfold retractable wall, resin flooring and resin wall coverings to meet modern NHS specification standards.

Skills labs, consultation rooms, wards and observations rooms

We created 3 Clinical Skills labs for group and part task teaching, 3 consultation rooms, as well as 3 simulated ward areas for hi-fidelity patient simulation and group work, and 3 observation rooms. The spaces contain a range of specialist equipment and furniture and a varied mixture of fidelity manikins ranging from premature babies to older adults.

Mechanical and Electrical Works

Extensive electrical works were carried out in order to install a 4K HD standard CCTV system. All rooms are equipped with IP cameras, capture devices and captured audio. With cameras above every bed bay, simulations and scenarios can now be streamed live for debrief and reflection.

The finished clinical skills laboratories provide a modern and fresh workspace for the university’s academics and students.
