Project Description:

Works consisted of alterations, modifications and external infill to Cheyne Wing to form a new Patient Investigation Unit (PIU) (also known as Programmed Investigation Unit) . The existing hospital wing is located in an extremely confined area with very limited access. The existing unit was fully operational during the works, which meant it was critically important to maintain a dust free environment at all times.
