About the project
The ward upgrades involved improvements to meet current HBN standards, where practicable. This included a complete overhaul of the mechanical and electrical services (medical gases, nurse call system, bedhead services, mechanical ventilation, radiant panel heating, small power and lighting) finishes, fitments, fixtures, sanitaryware, doors and ironmongery, suspended ceilings and cubicle curtain tracks, vinyl safety flooring and all necessary wall protection. The wards were refurbished adjacent occupied wards and required to meet strict HAI SCRIBE guidelines during construction. Agreed standards of finishes taking cognisance of Control of Infection and Health &SafetyÃs requirements along with each wardÃs specific requirements were developed.
