The fast-track project involves a wide-ranging programme of strip out, refurbishment and construction activities in an operational hospital environment.
The refurbishment involves a strip out of the patient rooms, and creation of enlarged en-suite bathrooms, with upgraded mechanical and electrical services. The en-suite room refurbishments will be carried out across seven phases to minimise disruption. A maximum of four rooms will be unavailable at any one time during the refurbishment scheme.
Work to create the replacement MRI facility will be carried out concurrently, with the scheme scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
To enable the relocation and construction of the MRI facility within the hospital, ISG will install a pre-fabricated extension outside the outpatient reception area, which will house two consulting rooms and a treatment room. ISG will construct a new concrete raft foundation to accommodate the facility, which is being built off-site. ISG’s remit also includes strengthening works to the new MRI facility.
“Working in any live hospital environment is challenging,” said Stuart Deverill, ISG’s managing director - London, “with robust measures required to minimise the impact of construction activity. At the New Victoria Hospital, private patients also expect hotel standard accommodation, which demands a high quality finish as well as considerate working patterns. Our sector expertise means that we can not only tackle these challenges sensitively but also offer the client a complete solution, including specialist commissioning services, all within the very strict deadlines required to meet commercial and patient care needs.”
