What We Do

North Shore Hospital - Day/Family Room Refurbishments

This project, although relatively low-budget, demanded precision work to be completed within a tight time schedule, within the working environment of North Shore Hospital.  Delivery of materials through live hospital wards requires careful planning and diligence, with detailed consideration to the health and safety of staff and members of the public at the forefront of every decision. Storage areas were also very limited, resulting in tight adherence to delivery schedules to enable the project to meet its deadline.

Communication and coordination with Facilities Management was critical at every point of planning, ensuring that every department affected by the works was given sufficient notice in order to make appropriate arrangements for hospital staff, patients and vital care services.

Noise, dust and fumes all needed to be managed in the clean environment of a hospital, so it was imperative to confine the work zone and to fully encapsulate it away from the live ward areas. We developed a creative technique to meet this unique situation: a zip that adheres to polythene to provide an air-tight barrier between the working environment and the rest of the hospital ward.

The District Health Board’s property staff were so impressed by this Brosnan innovation that they have now incorporated it into their standard procedures for similar projects throughout the hospital.
