The ICU fit-out at the Royal Melbourne Hospital was built on a strong foundation that places Melbourne Health as a leader in the provision of ICU facilities.
The new facility provides 10 intensive care beds, an isolation room, nurses station, associated amenities and ancillary spaces. The works are similar to the other ICU Pods on the same floor that were undertaken as part of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre project.
Alchemy’s experience came to the fore to fully co-ordinate the provisional services in readiness for highly specialised ICU equipment to be installed in a ‘turn-key’ fitout at completion, including medical gases and mobile nursing stations for life support services.
Working in a sensitive hospital environment required detailed staged works to address secure and isolated construction at all times, sympathetic to stringent infection control protocols, which were planned well in advance. Alchemy Construct ensured ongoing emergency pedestrian pathways were maintained at all times, alongside appropriate service isolations and other safety provisions crucial to the 24/7 hospital environment.
