Jersey General Hospital - Bartlett Ward
The phased refurbishment of an existing ward for housing patients at high risk of infection or infected patients requiring isolation. The project was undertaken whilst the ward was fully occupied 24 hours a day for the duration of the building works. Existing finishes and services were stripped out and new HTM compliant extract and supply ventilation systems were provided.
The project was located on the Second Floor of the Grade 1 Listed 1860’s Granite Block at the Jersey General Hospital. Building works were undertaken in phases which included the refurbishment of the rooms and bathrooms to provide more accessible facilities and an upgrade of the heating and ventilations services.
A new external roof deck was provided for a new external AHU and filtered exhaust flues, careful co-ordination was required with planning for forming new openings and penetrations through the 1860 Granite Building envelope which was a Grade 1 listed building.
The 5 isolation rooms were pressurised and balanced and secondary glazing was provided to each of the existing rooms, new disabled accessible en-suites were provided with full height wall cladding to improve infection control cleaning regimes.
