This complex x-ray department reconfiguration has several challenges typical of working in a hospital in a live patient environment. The key goals were to :
Upgrade the x-ray machines to provide modern digital x-ray capability.
Provide increased waiting area and to improve patient privacy and dignity.
Deliver the scheme in 2 phases, so that the Trust can continue to operate and only 'lose' one x-ray room at any time.
Upgrade the mechanical and electrical services including new roof air handling plant and ductwork distribution.
These photos were taken during phase 1 'snagging', prior to Philips arriving to begin their 2 week equipment install. The project has involved significant coordination between the design team, contractor and the clients equipment supplier, Philips. The challenge was particularly significant due to the tightness of space - every inch had to be maximised and this resulted in a very bespoke solution. All existing walls within the department have to demolished to achieve this tailored design and an added complication turned out to be lead paint contaminated walls, requiring specialist demolition and clearance procedures.
Updates on progress to follow.
