Brendan Merry & Partners are delighted to have successfully completed the Refurbishment of the Burkitt Ward as an extension to the Bone Marrow Unit Project and Phase 1 of the Cath Lab 3 project which involved the completion of the new Recovery Area at St. James’s Hospital.

The Main Contractor on both projects was Moston Construction who have carried out a fantastic job in a very difficult live environment. The works involved the demolition of the part of the existing ward and construction of four new Isolated En-suite Bedrooms and Ancillary Support areas including Drug Preparation Rooms, and Clean and Dirty Utility Rooms. There were significant complex parts of this project including the modification of the existing ventilation system which resolved successfully by the Design Team (Hannon Meehan Architects, Garland Civil/ Structural Engineers, Marson Building Services Engineers and St James’ Hospital Project Managers) and Moston Construction.

The Cath Lab 3 project is a multi-phased project and is the continuation of the Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory Reconfiguration and Upgrade Project which was successfully completed by Moston Construction Ltd. in 2022. The Project Team of BMP including Hannon Meehan Architects, Garland, Delap & Waller and SJH Project Managers have successfully completed Phase 1 of this project which involved the Reconfiguration of the existing Respiratory, Cardiology and Reception areas into a New Recovery Area for Patients.

The remaining phases are comprised of the following:-

  • Redevelopment of the existing Cath-Lab Day Centre and ancillary areas to be developed into MPB and Clinical FAC Offices, Cleaners Store, Dignity Room and Waiting Area.
  • Refurbishment of the existing MRI Waiting Area including the provision of forming a new Office adjacent to these works.
  • Removal of one of the existing Cath Labs and ancillary Rooms, reconfiguring the layout to suit the latest technological equipment.

This project is extremely complex and involves the sectional completion of the remaining Phases of work in sequence, in order to allow the Client to rotate staff from one area to another between each Phase. A significant portion of the works were carried out outside normal working hours in order to ensure that both the Cath-Lab that was completed in the previous phase and one other existing Cath-Lab remained fully operational for the duration of the works.
