Internal fit out of existing ward areas, new partitions and suspended ceilings in A&E Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

The Challenge

Working as a sub-contractor to Nevada Construction, STED Interiors was asked to create new wards and bed spaces, plus new arrangements to corridor areas. The hospital was not able to close the existing A&E Department, so the whole project had to be completed delicately, in an occupied, fully functioning hospital with real people and patients! Care had to be taken every step of the way, with everything from noise to deliveries having to be considered from the very start.

The Solution

Nevada Construction were great to work with, and had taken on very similar projects like this in the past, so under their guidance, STED Interiors knew how to perform under pressure & under strict supervision. Deliveries were timed to when the A&E Department was quietest, and a lot of thought went into handling materials in the safest way possible. Different types of walls had to be built for the various types of spaces; hygienic walls and impact-resistant walls, amongst others. All walls were plastered, and new hygienic Suspended Ceilings were installed – in some areas having to match up to existing Suspended Ceilings.

The Result

The project resulted in a fully functioning extension to the existing ward, with extra beds, waiting areas and rooms for various treatments – all completed on time, and on budget. It created so much more space for the busy A&E Department, and was greatly received by both patients, and staff who worked there. STED Interiors have assisted on many other projects within Derriford Hospital and continue to do so going forward.
