This 24-week project provided an Acute Cardiac Care Unit (ACCU) and Discharge Lounge via the refurbishment and internal alterations of the existing Ward 1D and Clinic K respectively.
This project has created two single bed spaces for high level care, a six-bed high care ward, a 23-bed in-patient general care ward with associated support accommodation, and a day care facility adjacent to the ward. The accommodation has provided modern compliant cardiology care, meeting all current Scottish Healthcare Standards and Guidance.
Refurbishment works included the strip out of all existing services and wall / ceiling finishes back to the shell, the formation of new accommodation, reinstatement and upgrading of all ITS systems, new drainage and water supplies, new ventilation and heating systems, new doors, flooring and decoration throughout.
This project was deemed essential and subsequently permitted to continue onsite during the Coronavirus nationwide lockdown. By working closely with the Clinical, Estates and project team, we ensured a robust Covid-19 Risk Assessment was established to mitigate the impact on completion.
