Mid-Ulster Hospital Wards 5, 6 & Thompson House refurbishment

The project was for the refurbishment and enabling works to the Wards 4, 5 & 6 and Thompson House at the Mid-Ulster Hospital Complex to accommodate Primary & Community Care for Older people’s Services and redecoration of various rooms on ground floor of the Community Social Services building on the Mid Ulster Hospital Complex.

The works were to provide clinical treatment rooms and office accommodation within Thompson House which was partially vacant. The works included internal alterations to form individual and open plan offices and clinical rooms with provision for IT, Telecoms and M&E services throughout.

Security for nurses and staff at night was a priority e.g. call points with “swipe access” have been installed.

In order to maintain sterile environments Styroshield Hygienic Acrylic Emulsion paint was utilised and IPS panels installed.

The works were carried out in a partially occupied building, to minimise disruption to the occupying services, this was achieved by reducing deliveries and coordinating out of hours deliveries. The Hospital remained fully operational during the construction process and the contract was carried out in a room by room decant method to allow staff to continue work.

Vulnerable patients in Ward 5 necessitated no noise or dust and isolation of that particular wing until other temporary facilities were released. Temporary access was provided whilst works to main entrance door and ramp with access controls were installed.
