Extensive planning and logistics management with daily liaising and planning with the facility teams to agree on work zones to reflect changes arising from the Hospital operations.
Works were carried out in a live hospital environment, therefore we had to ensure minimum disruption to patients and healthcare staff, following strict Covid-19 protocols.
Multiple phased handovers, including night working, were necessary to maintain the hospital’s operation.
