This project involved the refurbishment of existing clinical coding rooms, demolition of existing extension and erection of new extension to create Admissions on the Day Unit (AOTD) to support elective recovery. Located next to the theatres, the AOTD enables patients to arrive at the unit on the morning of their surgery and to move quickly into theatres, for their procedure.
The existing second floor within the Esher Wing at Kingston Hospital was refurbished and extended which involved the following areas of work.
- Excavation to reduce levels
- Piling and concrete slab
- Structural steel frame
- Curtain Walling
- External Cladding
- Sedum Roofing
- New partitioning and suspended ceilings
- Medical gas installations
- Access control, Fire and alarm system, Nurse call
- Mechanical and Electrical services
- Air Conditioning and lighting
- Fire Stopping
Storm have helped the Trust to develop a bespoke Admissions on the Day Unit within Esher Wing, the team have been very flexible and responsive through the challenges of Covid, and we have been able to deliver a high-quality refurbishment 4 weeks ahead of plan.

This new unit will provide a much more efficient way for us to manage elective care. Patients coming in for planned procedures will be able to stay in one place, as opposed to being on wards across the hospital, and will benefit from a significantly smoother and quicker pathway, from arrival for their surgery through to having their procedure.
