Burrell House Hospice
The project involved the complete refurbishment of an existing building within the Royal Hampshire County Hospital site into a new hospice building, designed to provide a new 10 bed palliative care facility located within the larger hospital site.
New high efficiency heating, low energy lighting and modern services make this a calming and relaxing facility, carefully balanced with the need to create a safe, clinical environment.
The project was successfully handed over to the client, matching the high standards expected of this type of facility.
Berensden Laundry, Southampton
The development of a new commercial laundry facility based in Southampton, for the processing of over 1 million individual items of medical and hospital laundry per week.
ION worked closely with various manufacturers of the laundry plant and equipment, to design and oversee the installation of the building services required to operate this new ultra-efficient commercial process facility. The M&E systems designed and installed in the development included energy efficient heat recovery systems, a major water treatment facility and water reclamation systems.
Royal Hampshire County Hospital – Burrell Wing Robotic Pharmacy Facility
ION were engaged to undertake the design and delivery of an automated Pharmacy dispensing facility at Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester. The new facility provides automated robot dispensing of drugs and medicines for this busy county hospital.
The services included chilled water, LTHW heating, central ducted AHU ventilation systems and dirty extract systems. High level access control and security systems were also required for this drugs distribution facility.
Close co-ordination and management of the project was necessary in order to minimise the impact of the new works on adjacent 'live' working areas within the hospital.
The project was delivered successfully both to programme and to meet the highest quality expected in today's clinical environments.
