Freeman Hospital NCCC

Karen Parkin

This £850k project comprised a programme to replace defective ventilation systems within the NCCC situated at the Freeman Hospital Newcastle upon Tyne.

The works involved providing temporary partitions and screens to isolate the work areas, protection of specialist equipment, strip out, mechanical and electrical installations and the reinstating of the finishes to each area.

The works were carried out in a live hospital environment and required careful planning, organisation, co-ordination, culture and communication in conjunction with the various departments within the hospital.

The hospital services remained fully operational throughout the works.
