PATHOLOGY LABORATORIES & MORTUARY

The Northern Hospital

Challenges:

  • No interruption to pathology services was possible. Staging of works.

  • Maintaining existing body holding stores operational until new larger facilities developed.


Floors above and below remained occupied during construction. Issues for the designer:

  • Management of noise, dust,

  • Maintaining active services,

  • Removal of demolition debris,

  • Delivery of materials.


Limited existing documentation of hospital services. A systematic approach required for redevelopment with a series of ‘prior let’ contracts.
