With the primary objective and main challenge of ensuring six operational theatres at all times whilst creating two new theatres within a ‘live’ clinical environment, our team delivered solutions beyond expectations. 

The success of the project was achieved only through a clear understanding of our client’s needs and close collaboration with the estates team to manage service interruptions and commissioning activities without disrupting the day to day activities of the hospital.

The new laminar flow theatres now enable the hospital in using the theatres in a more flexible way than ever before.  The surgical team will be able to see more patients in a much improved environment, leading to a  better experience for patients and those caring for them.
