The Heart Hospital Theatres, London W1
The Cath Labs on second floor were replaced with 3 new theatres and recovery to meet the increased demand on the hospital’s existing 4 theatres. Additional spaces such as the ground floor consulting suite and the basement radiology department were included within the scope.
Determining which areas were served by the existing duct network proved challenging. These were re-routed to serve the refurbished areas on other floors and 3 existing bedrooms on the third floor were amalgamated into a new air handling plant room to serve the new theatres.
The hospital remained fully operational throughout the construction programme through multiple phases which incorporated the decanting of departments.
