Cosmetic surgery clinic facilities

Fit-out of a new city centre cosmetic surgery clinic required specialist building services provision appropriate for a 'cutting-edge' medical environment.

Contract Value: 50k
Date: 2008
Local Authority: Liverpool City Council

Context

Our client's requirement was the adaptation of a shell unit within a new, mixed-use commercial development to suit the purposes of a clinical environment offering minor surgery procedures and cosmetic dentistry together with associated public areas, offices and parking all to a very high specification and standard of amenity.

The Challenge

In addition to mechanical and electrical provision for the communal areas, the five treatment rooms required more complex clinical services such as vacuum drainage, waste management and safety provision relating to the use of potentially explosive gases.

Our Solution

Our specification included the use of mercury-activated switches within the medical treatment areas where use of inflammable gases was a clear safety consideration. To enable efficient installation and future maintenance of items such as waste drainage, power, data cabling and the installation of specialist furniture, the floor was raised to accommodate these services.

All specialist works required additional inspection and approval by the Healthcare Commission.

For the benefit of patients and staff, managed access to the premises is controlled in a secure and discreet manner whilst complying to DDA standards, using the appropriate door entry and nurse-call systems.

Consolux also advised on the installation of air-conditioning, ventilation, the heat recovery system, fire alarm, computer and telecoms cabling.

Completed March 2008.
