The project comprised the creation of a new cardiac catheterisation treatment suite built on top of an existing building which remained in constant use throughout the construction period. Alterations and improvements were also carried out in a number of adjacent departments.
A two-storey steel frame was erected on the flat roof of the existing Orthopaedic Clinic to create space for the catheterisation suite plus a plant room above. The new masonry external walls, glazing and roof finish were detailed to match the existing Hospital.
The interior provided two x-ray shielded catheterisation labs and control rooms, a nine-bay recovery suite plus ancillary supporting facilities, offices and waiting areas.
The other part of the redevelopment involved alteration to the existing Emergency Department with a two storey extension providing additional floor space for patient discharge, office accommodation, staff facilities and changing rooms. Once again, this work was designed to be carried out with the minimum of disruption to the day-to-day activities of the adjacent departments.
