Located in Southampton General Hospital’s south academic block, the new facility comprises three multi-purpose teaching rooms, office space, and a waiting area, and provides access to a vast range of clinical simulations for training purposes.
With additional teaching areas and laboratories situated on the floor above and surrounding the new suite, there were several challenges to overcome. Access was limited and noise had to be kept to a minimum throughout the works. Additional preparatory work was also required to ensure a new vinyl floor was installed to the required standard, putting additional pressure on the construction programme.
Despite these hurdles, the project was successfully completed within the 10-week timeframe.
