Alterations and conversions at an existing fully functioning hospital.
Total Construction provided alterations and conversions to an existing hospital, including new recovery areas, a High Dependency Unit and the formation of new Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) areas.
The scope also included construction of two new theatres, the conversion of mental health rooms to surgical rooms, new bedrooms with en-suites, dirty and clean utility rooms, a new kitchen, a new gymnasium, a new medical records store and three new lifts.
The installation of the new dirty and clean lifts for the CSSD required the removal of the existing post-tension concrete slabs which had to be scanned to identify the location of post tensioning. Once identified, the removal of the concrete slabs was carried out by coring the slab; a method which minimises noise and vibration.
Challenges faced during the project included changes in design, and planning issues which delayed works to the level 1 kitchen. In consultation with our client, we reprogrammed and restaged these works to complete the project within the construction period.
