Head of Infrastructure Programme,
Medical Air Technology (MAT) has recently completed work at BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital in Surrey, installing an energy-efficient ultraclean ventilation (UCV) canopy from its healthcare award-nominated ECO-flow™ range. The hospital wanted to increase the number of orthopaedic operations it was able to offer, so decided to upgrade an existing theatre to include a UCV canopy. MAT already has a relationship with BMI Healthcare, having worked at its hospitals in the past. so both MAT and BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital knew they would be partnering with market-leading organisations and could anticipate a highly successful outcome.
The hospital wanted the new theatre to be completed during the relatively quiet Easter period. As the work would include not only installation of a UCV canopy, but also considerable preparatory work to prepare the space. and full refurbishment including a new ceiling and complete redecoration, carefully scheduling to ensure minimum disruption to staff and patients was essential. The only access to the new theatre was through the clean corridor the hospital anticipated this could be an issue, as noise and dust are an inevitable byproduct of major building works.However, thanks to close liaison between the teams from MAT and the hospital. and a high level of professionalism and commitment to client needs throughout. the anticipated issue failed to cause problems, and the project was handed over on time and within budget.
