RNSH Severe Burns Unit
About the Project
The construction of the new Burns Unit involved detailed demolition of brickwork and existing built elements within an operating Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Precise planning and detailed project methodology were employed to ensure that the adjacent ICU was not impacted during the works.
Investigation of the existing services, specifically the medical gases and power was undertaken and further investigations conducted to ensure the operating theatre below was not affected.
Scope of works included:
- Detailed demolition
- coordination of services
- Construction of new built elements including sealing the rooms to achieve a positive pressure for the independent air conditioning system
- Dedicated mechanical services including Hepa filters, as rooms had to be positively pressured at all times to disperse possible air borne contaminants
- Medical gases alterations and additional MS panels including Oxygen, Medical Air & vacuum, Nitrous Oxide all connected via pressure switch gas alarms
- Medical pendant installation via supplier’s ‘cotton reel’ including power, earthing & medical gases
- Dedicated room wall & ceiling heaters controlled locally and via the BMCS
- Installation of hospital equipment including commissioning
- Hydraulic, data, examination lighting, access control, automatic doors & fire services
- Installation and certification of an Equipotential earthing system to cardiac protected areas throughout unit
