Theatres 5 and 6

Salford Royal Hospital

John Turner Construction was appointed to refurbish and re-fit two operating theatres for Salford Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, as part of a major upgrade programme, procured through the Construction Impact Framework. Located on the third floor of this busy hospital, theatres 5 and 6 adjoin existing neurosurgical theatres on three sides.

This refurbishment and upgrade project was to take into account new surgical specialities including laparoscopic (key hole) and laser surgery.

Our construction works progressed with the surrounding areas, corridors and theatres remaining fully operational. The project required precise planning due to the requirement to maintain the operational capability of the hospital and respect the proximity of the public and staff.

Works included the modification and installation of complex building services which involved medical gases, new air handling units, electrical installation, ultra-clean canopies, high-tech neurological lighting and high definition cameras. All works were undertaken using a rigorous permit to work system and temporary works including stringent noise, vibration and dust control. The refurbished theatre walls were finished with specialist lead lined panels and protective shielding for the ceilings and floors was installed. During this time, a new liquid membrane was applied on the external roof above the two new theatres.
