New Orthopaedic Theatre at Musgrave Park Hospital

We were appointed to programme, execute & manage the construction of a new Orthopaedic Theatre within the live theatre block at Musgrave Park Hospital. The works included localised demolitions, alterations and refurbishment to the existing facility and the construction of the new theatre.

The new state-of-the-art theatre with dedicated preparation, scrub & anaesthetic rooms is designed to suit the requirements of the surgical team & create an uninterrupted patient flow. A bespoke ‘dirty utility’ room was created to the rear of the operating theatre to prevent risk of contamination & assist with their infection control measures.

The new theatre includes anaesthetic pendants, operating lamps, surgeons control panels, laminar flow ‘ultra clean’ ventilation canopy & complex M&E installations, designed to control air filtration, temperature & humidity. The interior design used is intended to enrich the daily working routine of the staff with the bright, fresh colours.

Gerard McCallan (Estates Department) stated ‘it was a pleasure to have Turkington’s onsite, they conducted their business throughout with total professionalism, keeping the Client informed and involved at all times.’
