Delivered through the refurbishment of a vacant ward, the new facility includes 10 consulting rooms and seven echocardiography rooms, along with a new reception, meeting rooms and a 52-seat waiting area. Structural work involved a substantial new steel frame within an existing courtyard to house a two-storey plant space, as well as an appraisal of the existing structure.

Emergency Assessment Unit

The redevelopment and extension of an existing EAU unit added consulting rooms, side rooms and a larger waiting room, and increased bed bay spacing. Structural work included foundation and ground works, a steel frame to support a new air-handling unit, internal alterations and assessment of the existing structure.

Maternity Unit

A four-bed bay was redeveloped into two single family rooms, while two new birthing pools were also installed. Three theatres were refurbished with new roof-mounted plant and a steel frame to carry plant loads back to the existing columns. Other structural work included new service openings and an assessment of the existing structure.

Ultrasound Unit

The project comprised the redevelopment of an x-ray records filing area into a new department of five ultrasound rooms, a three-bed waiting bay, reception and administration facilities and a new primary waiting area. Structural work included new service and builders-work spaces, and the installation of a steel frame to support a new air-handing unit.
