Project Description

Alterations and refurbishments to form modern open plan air-conditioned offices & upgraded consulting rooms with high specification finishes.
Wash basins on IPS systems to HTM specification were installed to each consulting room to approval of Infection Control Department.


The works were carried out in a busy health centre and all deliveries and loading in materials etc was carried out with careful liaison with the centre’s staff.

The consulting rooms were upgraded over three consecutive weekends with the rooms brought back into full use each week in between. This required meticulous planning and organisation as full use of the rooms was critical for the centres work load
A 10 meter long steel beam was required to support the roof of the newly formed open plan office areas. Although this was manufactured in 2 pieces for bolting together on site each piece weighed around a quarter of a ton. Lifting Genies and Acro Props were fully utilised to get these steels into position.
