The project was undertaken in 3 phases and involved the relocation and redesign of the GU Medicine (Rosehill Clinic) and Physiotherapy Departments into a newly refurbished area on the first floor of block B at St Helier Hospital followed by the relocation of the Phlebotomy department to the newly refurbished area on the ground floor of Ferguson House previously occupied by the Physiotherapy department.
This work was undertaken in a live hospital environment involved some demolition and alteration works including installation of mechanical and electrical services as well as ceiling, floors, wall finishes, new doors sets and sanitary ware fittings.
As part of the Phlebotomy relocation we also installed of the first “Changing Places” fully adjustable toilet for Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. This enables people who cannot use standard accessible toilets and changing rooms including people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy.
I have appointed Storm on several projects in recent years and have always found them to be professional, approachable and cooperative. This project was complicated by the fact that it was undertaken in three phases for three different patient services in a live hospital environment whilst applying Covid19 compliant working procedures.
Their staff were professionally managed, working well to minimise any disruption to staff and patient services against a tight deadline. They workmanship and quality of the finished areas has created a fresh new environment that the Trust staff are excited to work in and I would be happy to work with Storm on any future projects.
