Future-proofed’ orthopaedic facility delivered

George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton has acquired an additional modular building from Wernick Buildings, to fulfil the demands for orthopaedic procedures.

The single-storey, 786 m2 building, manufactured offsite at Wernick’s specialist South West Wales facility, links to a 30-bed ward building supplied last March. The latest building is a hybrid volumetric theatre suite developed specifically for this project, but also to tackle NHS pressures for fast-track theatres builds. Wernick said: “Unique to modular construction, its concrete floor system delivers a 3 m floor to ceiling height for HTM and HBN compliance.”

The project called for Wernick Buildings to work closely with the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust to design and construct a fully HTM and HBN-compliant solution which included the specialist fit-out of the theatres. The 55 m2 operating theatres feature MAT UCV skirtless canopies, ‘maximising their  spacious and modern feel’. Future-proofing for laparoscopic surgery was also considered.

Wernick further future-proofed the design to allow the Trust to expand both the number of theatres and the recovery area, and add a second storey, should needs dictate. Wernick said: “With its twin theatres, the building is an impressive addition to the hospital estate. Clinical staff say it is a great place to work from, giving extremely positive feedback for the standard and quality of the build.”
