Building Projects Group was contracted by Atkins Global for this multi-ward refurbishment. In addition to the strict infection control requirements, we had to adhere to the hospital's own major control charter. This included installing temporary partitions made from flame retardant Antinox sheets and double zip doors to segregate the building works from the main functioning areas of the hospital.
To add to this, we had to work around an isolated area being used to control an outbreak of the Norovirus bug. Only the team's implementation of enhanced management controls and procedures allowed the hospital to work to its safest maximum capacity. To maintain professionalism and safety of the working wards, all operatives wore regular clothing in the functioning areas of the hospital and changed into high visibility work gear once behind the partitioned areas.
