Reconfiguration of the Breast Screening Unit at Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield

The project consisted of the reconfiguration of the existing Breast Screening Unit at Royal Hallamshire Hospital.
This included new steel work and mechanical plant to the roof.
Including interconnecting services across 9 phases.

Challenges

This scheme consisted of 9 phases of work. All with interconnecting service supplies.  Working within a fully operational outpatients department in such confined rooms always requires careful planning and organisation to ensure that the construction works do not have an adverse effect on the critical activities of the hospital.

This project required more planning than most as the drainage connections were carried out onto live stacks in full use that serviced other floors above the construction works area.  In addition, heavy demolition was required to several of the phases without noise disruption to the adjoining rooms.  This meant several meetings with Estates and medical staff to agree a programme of works to carry out the vital operations.

Finally, structural steel work and a large AHU was required on the scheme. All to be lifted onto the roof which resulted in the closure of A road to accommodate the crane lift.

All to a high hygiene rating achieved on time, to 9 very short programmes ranging from 3 to 6 weeks.
