Trafford General Hospital, Theatres 10 & 11

Client: Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

Architect: IBI

Budget: £4m

Completed: 2022

Our team was appointed to deliver the feasibility study, detailed 3D MEP design in Revit, and the commissioning of services for two new theatres and recovery areas within Trafford General Hospital.

The project involved fully refurbishing an old, dilapidated ICU building at the hospital into two new, entirely repurposed dual operating theatres and a recovery department fully compliant with current HTM and HBN standards.

Dedicated plant was designed for the roof of the theatres with a modular enclosure that houses three air handling units, two of which supply each theatre to allow them to operate independently and a third to supply the recovery and ancillary areas. Each air handling unit provides HTM03-01 air change rates and the correct pressure regimes to provide ultraclean ventilation for the theatres.

Both theatres benefit from an Ultraclean ECO-flow UCV Canopy, anti-bacterial medical trunking, essential duel supply electrical distribution, medical gas systems, and LED lighting, which improves the theatres’ lighting levels whilst saving on energy consumption.
