Background

Stroma Building Control undertook hospital refurbishment and Fire Safety Strategy planning. Stroma Building Control was employed to undertake several projects within the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, including the refurbishment of a hospice and a 3-storey extension providing theatres, high dependency units, and imaging facilities for patients. The hospital’s extension spanned a total of 6,500sqm of new clinical space, which linked the existing buildings. Due to the hospital’s urban setting, space was at a premium, making it challenging to utilise all available space during the renovation. Besides working on the refurbishment, Stroma Building Control assisted in developing a co-ordinated fire strategy for the entire hospital. This was particularly important to ensure that this historical building complies with the latest Fire Safety Standards. The hospital buildings are arranged around the Grade II listed Chapel of St John, while the other buildings are considered ‘of merit’. The fire strategy employed by Stroma will be used as the basis of all future refurbishment projects.

“These upgrading works ensure that the hospital can continue to provide the very best in modern health care.”
