St Peter’s Hospital May Ward provides acute care for general medical (Endocrine and Rheumatology) patients, comprising 22 beds, 3 bays and 2 side rooms and a twin room.
The ward has recently undergone a full refurbishment including the strip out and upgrade of:
- Floor coverings and wall protection;
- IPS cubicles, sanitary fixtures and fittings;
- Cubicle curtains, rails and roller blinds;
- Door hardware;
- Air conditioning and ventilation systems;
- Medical Gas systems;
- General and emergency lighting;
- Power and data cabling / distribution and bedhead installations;
- Access control;
- Nurse call systems.
Dewick & Associates have provided comprehensive Building Handover Manuals with integrated Health & Safety File for the project to detail the architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical system installation. To reduce the Principal Contractors workload, D&A were responsible for contacting all trades / subcontractors to collate information on their part of the installation including manufacturers’ literature / technical data, maintenance and care instructions, warranties, certificates and test reports, and record drawings.
Our in-house technical writing team authored the final manual which included a full detailed description of the works and specific sections for the mechanical and electrical installation. The skill and knowledge of our trained Technical Writers is key to ensuring that handover documentation is high quality and provides the information the NHS Trust needed for operation and maintenance of the ward.
