Healthcare Case Study
Dust extraction during major hospital redevelopment
The Royal Sussex County Hospital is undergoing a significant redevelopment to become one of the UK's top health facilities. The £485 million project will see all existing buildings replaced along the front of the hospital and new wards built to reflect the hospital's '3T' ethos which prioritises 'teaching, trauma and tertiary care'.
Kier Construction, a key contractor on the project, sought solutions to satisfy the health and safety considerations necessary to carry out work in a live hospital. As their work would focus largely on stripping walls back and re-plastering, they had a particular need for dust control to prevent cross-contamination into the clinical wards. The solution would need to be effective and mobile. Kier approached RVT to find a system that would fulfil their requirements.
