The project involved the Refurbishment and Extension to the existing building, St Michael’s Hospital, a period building adjacent to the main hospital.
This contract required the complete gutting out of an existing 3 story building and the building of a new two story building connected to it from the rear. It was designed as a mixed use building to be used by the hospital for a Phlebotomy Center, Training Center & five individual Offices.
Works included the following:
- The existing building had to be completely stripped back internally and, due to the structural degradation found with the building on stripping back, there were existing walls that required structural supporting and repair.
- The replacement of the roof – preserving the original roof slate and lead-works for reuse to the new replacement roof.
- A full and comprehensive dry rot and dampness treatment to both the stripped out existing floors and remaining walls and the few remaining timber lintels.
- The existing windows were also removed and replaced with newly manufactured sliding sash windows incorporating a sliding sash air seal system and double glazing throughout.
- All internal walls were newly constructed along with a replica stairs true to the original that was removed.
- The existing chimney stack was also removed after the areas of asbestos were removed by a specialist contractor for safe disposal.
