Our recent refurbishment of Level 2, Sylvia Perry Wing at Hollywood Hospital created a new Day Surgery incorporating a new reception, patient wards, staff offices, patient record store, staff area, interview rooms and WCs.
The project featured a considerable amount of mechanical, electrical and hydraulics work, as well as modifications to the floor layout. There was also substantial modification to walls and ceilings, especially around the entrance area and the two new waiting/discharge lounges.
Coordination of the hospital’s incumbent medical gases contractor was crucial to ensure that all isolations and alterations aligned with the construction programme. As the surrounding hospital remained fully active, our works had to be very considerate of the hospital’s schedule to avoid causing disruption.
The project team was always proactive in addressing issues, especially working in an older existing hospital together with a very tight 5 week programme. When locations of new WCs and fire hose reels brought up installation challenges, we were able to collaboratively identify a revised arrangement that met with both the hospital staff’s approval and the stringent Health Board Inspection criteria.
Another great result adding to a broad portfolio of healthcare projects from Swan Group.
