Project Overview.

The creation of a new paediatric emergency department in the vacant floor of the annexe building at Southampton General Hospital.

Works include a paediatric waiting area, a new resuscitation area and the refurbishment of an area inside the emergency department to relocate the current pit stop area.

The scheme is being delivered in two phases with each phase having multiple steps within them to create circulation around the works area to enable patients to reach their destination.
Cladding is installed to three sides of the annexe building and at the rear of the recently formed extension at the top of the ambulance ramp.

External groundworks and a steel frame further extend the new extension to meet the existing East Wing and extend the entrances separating the adult and paediatric waiting areas. These areas also receive new cladding.

Mechanical and electrical packages include moving the existing fire alarm panels and supplying two air handling units (AHU’s) with one feeding the annexe building and one feeding the adult waiting, paediatric waiting and resuscitation area.
