Driven by the Royal Hallamshire Hospital’s refurbishment programme, the Q Floor refurbishment provides new spaces to meet current standards and regulations for healthcare environments. The scheme was also vital to the hospital in lowering the numbers of cancelled operations during the winter, caused by pressures on the A&E department, by increasing the number of theatres.
The Q Floor refurbishment was logistically complex, located on the 14th floor of the hospital with live floors above and below the site. Minimising disturbances and disruption of day to day operations, as well as staff and patients, was vital. Infection control was also a key part of the project – moving goods and people to the 14th floor without compromising infection control required careful consideration.
The logistics plan was created with the aim of minimising disruption and maintaining infection control. A hoist was erected from the ground floor to the 14th floor for goods and passengers; this provided an effective means of reaching site without using the hospital’s lifts, which would have had a negative impact on infection control and would disturb the hospital’s day to day activities. The hoists added value to the project, increasing efficiency and allowing for faster completion.
Quiet works were carried out at night to ensure that the project completed to a programmed extension of time. A BIM model of the project was also developed, ensuring accuracy in planning and design. The model helped in the installation of a tight, congested service void above the theatres, which was carried out without clashes and with good access for maintenance.
The Q Floor theatres were successfully completed in April 2018. The site team engaged continually with the surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, and wider clinical staff who would be working in the new theatres to determine and deliver their requirements, with the team creating a flythrough of the scheme to encourage clear discussions and engagement.
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals were extremely happy with the quality of the theatres and the service they received; this led to future work with the Trust at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, developing a new, state-of-the-art PET-MRI scanner facility.
