Hall Analytical Laboratory Fitout https://www.mtxcontracts.co.uk/hall-analytical-laboratory-fitout/ Thu, 23 Apr 2020 16:17:11 +0000 https://www.mtxcontracts.co.uk/?p=7340 MTX were awarded the contract to provide scientific company Hall Analytical with a state-of-the-art laboratory in a pre-existing building.

MTX were awarded the contract to provide scientific company Hall Analytical with a state-of-the-art laboratory in a pre-existing building.

The Requirements

Hall Analytical forms part of Crawford Scientific, the UK’s premier supplier of chromatography products. They offer bespoke, analytical services including mass spectrometry, elemental analysis and spectroscopy. Due to their continued growth, Hall Analytical had a requirement to expand their current services to a new site, located in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

Provision of further accommodation and laboratory facilities allows the end users to carry out more sample analysis, to meet demand of their growing business and client base.

The Solution

To assist with the design phase, MTX appointed architectural partners HPA and consulting engineers DSSR and together produced a bespoke, single storey, modern solution.

Commencing on site in September 2019, MTX provided the complete fitout of 8 laboratories, including a LC-MS (Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) lab, GC-MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) labs, an inorganics lab, wet labs, vape testing labs and ancillary areas.

Collectively these laboratories enable the end users to test compositions of solids or liquids and identify compounds of samples, amongst other examination activities.

Construction works were completed to the highest standard, utilising ultra clean materials and finishes. This was to ensure full compliance was achieved, in relation to the testing of products and materials for the pharmaceutical industry.

Hall Analytical Lab

Main Considerations

Air quality was the main client request, due to the nature of works that take place inside the laboratories. When the end users test and check the chemical samples, they need to ensure that they can clearly and accurately identify what elements are present in the specimen. Poor air quality would interfere with this process and potentially hamper the results.

MTX completed the project in just 25 weeks, from initial site set up to the facility becoming completely operational.

Following a competitive tender, MTX were awarded a multi-million pound scheme to deliver a twin operating theatre and eye clinic to Luton & Dunstable University Hospital.

The Requirements

The Trust had a requirement for additional theatre capacity in order to cater for a larger patient intake. The project formed part of the Trust’s broader construction plans for further development at the hospital.

The Solution

The project was completed over various phases, including demolition and enabling package, temporary eye day surgical unit (EDSU) and the construction of the new twin ultra clean canopy theatre complex.

For the operating theatres MTX worked alongside architectural partners IBI Group and M&E Consulting Engineers DSSR, to design and construct a bespoke facility that provided 2 additional storeys of accommodation, directly adjacent to the existing hospital street. A new connection was also constructed to link the new to existing. This also ensured that the new theatre facility operates in full co-ordination with the adjacent building.

The ground floor of the new facility comprises the twin theatres, scrub, anaesthetic, 24 bed recovery, consulting rooms, changing area and central reception with waiting area. The M&E services included, to name a few, 3no AHU’s providing ventilation to the separate departments, ceiling mounted radiant panels, medical gases, smoke fire dampers, LED lighting, nurse call system and video intercom. The first floor houses the dedicated plant room.

The state-of-the-art bespoke theatre facility features an appealing curtain glazed entrance with timber cladding and has provided the Trust with 1450m² of new accommodation.

Luton & Dunstable University Hospital Ward

Main Considerations

Working in a live hospital environment alongside 3rd party contractors meant that key co-ordination and communication was essential, in order to carry out various works such as logistics, Health & Safety and infrastructure works.

Furthermore, works involved connecting the new theatres into the existing live department via linkway breakthroughs.

Forward planning and consideration were vital between MTX, the Trust and the 3rd party contractors to ensure disruption to the ongoing hospital activities was kept to a minimum.

MTX have delivered a new NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and refurbished SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit) and HDU (High Dependency Unit) to Birmingham City Hospital.

Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust had a requirement to refurbish and extend their current neonatal department to expand capacity which would allow them to treat more pre-term babies.

Offsite Healthcare Construction Solution

Working with architectural partners RPS and combined consulting engineers RPS and DSSR, MTX provided a 180m² single storey offsite extension to house a 6 cot NICU, nurse base, quiet room and staff office. The scheme included new dedicated external plant and connects into the existing via 2 new links.

Hospital Refurbishment Solution

In addition to providing the new offsite facility, MTX also refurbished the hospital’s current SCBU 1 & 2, HDU and supporting ancillary areas.

NICU prep room

Bespoke Healthcare Construction

MTX commenced with the offsite phase of the project first. The current SCBU and HDU remained live and operational throughout the groundworks and building install. Due to the sensitive nature of the facility, noise control was extremely important. MTX utilised acoustic barriers against the windows and ensured acoustic control around machinery was in place at all times.

As well as the acoustic measures being taken externally, the internal noise levels were also monitored throughout the groundworks process to ensure levels were kept to a minimum and within the required standard. A daily quiet period was also introduced.

Once the building landed, the existing SCBU and HDU were temporarily relocated to a suitable ward so the refurbishment works could begin in parallel to the fit out of the new NICU. The project was completed in just 20 weeks and handed over in December 2019.
