At Wexham Park Hospital, Kier was contracted to provide a new Emergency Department and Assessment Centre. The new development was designed to replace and consolidate existing emergency facilities under a single roof, aiming to reduce the length of stay and number of long stay admissions, and eliminating the need to move patients long distances across the hospital site.
The redevelopment involved major and minor refurbishment of the existing facilities, with the addition of a new-build extension, which formed the new main entrance. Our works increased the facility’s capability to accommodate an additional 1,000 births per year from 4,500 to 5,500 births. All works were completed in a live hospital environment, while maintaining business as usual throughout the project for patients, visitors and staff.
All works were completed within the adjacency of live maternity wards whereby the safety and wellbeing of patients were critical to maintain care standards. Working with the hospital and ward teams our team engaged in daily and weekly co-ordination meetings to overcome nuisance, logistics and programme constraints without any loss of care incurring to the hospitals 24 hours-a-day programme.
Whilst the frame was being built, 164 mechanical, electrical and plumbing service modules were manufactured offsite, the equivalent length of nine football pitches. This enabled a fast-track installation, with four modules being fixed each day. All M&E services were replaced throughout to the latest healthcare standards with fabric alternations internally to meet the desired operations of the trust.
Our project provided appropriate space and facilities to allow delivery of services that optimise quality of care, patient safety and minimise clinical risk and improve the clinical adjacencies.
The efficiency of the hospital was improved through the elimination of service duplication caused by service separation, minimising the waste of resource caused by inter-department travel and distance between services.
The working environment for the staff was improved by providing a modern, safe and fit for purpose working environment. By ensuring the facilities are compliant with NHS and other regulations, as well as providing facilities that minimise clinical risks.
The patients and families’ environment was improved by providing a modern, safe, fit for purpose facilities that meets the patients and families’ expectations to use the Trust’s services, and provide high quality, comfortable accommodation that protects privacy and dignity.
