Creation of new interim Mother and Baby Unit within a Grade II listed building
In 2017, Fifields Construction carried out a refurbishment of the ground floor ward within the Grade II listed building at Wonford House Hospital, transforming the existing area for use as an interim Mother and Baby unit.
The works were carried out whilst the building remained in full operation throughout the contract phase. Care and consideration was paramount due to the delicate nature of the building.
The site area was segregated from the remaining building with internal and external hoarding and noisy activities were undertaken at specific times arranged with the end user including out of hours working where required.
The works comprised demolitions to the existing area, ready for the installation of new drainage, block and beam floors, new
mechanical and electrical services, internal finishes, flooring and decorations.
The works were completed in a time-frame of 17 weeks.
