Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

RPS acted as lead consultant for the refurbishment of two theatres taking a detailed brief from the Client for the refurbishment works which involved the removal of the existing floors, decoration throughout, replacement of scrub troughs and wash basins, provision of new electronic sensor taps, new doors with vistamatic panels, cleaning and upgrading of ventilation system, replacement and repair of balance flaps and new worktops and drawer units throughout.

RPS produced the specification and tender documents with the other consultants and produced a detailed programme to ensure that the works could be completed during a two week shut down of the theatres for normal maintenance requirements.

The main contractor was required to carry out the works adjacent to theatres that remained fully functionally at all times. RPS ensure that strict dust suppression was maintained at all times and were required to make regular site visits due to the short duration of the contract.
