Raising the bar at Spire St Anthony's Hospital

ISG’s operations director, David Broderick, has praised ISG’s Building Information Modelling (BIM) team for delivering an "innovative" and "forward-focused" private healthcare project for Spire St Anthony’s Hospital in Cheam, Surrey.

David made the comments in an article for the Health Estate Journal in January 2017.

The Spire project used BIM to plan the most heavily serviced areas during the construction.

In creating an extension to the building, all of the new services had to be designed to fully integrate with the existing facilities.

David writes that Spire St Anthony’s Hospital is one of the most technologically integrated private healthcare facilities in the country, and features highly advanced equipment.

"There is a growing trend towards the specification of hybrid operating theatres using advanced equipment, and the Spire Healthcare facility in Cheam is the first in the UK to use a compact ultra-clean hood ventilation system," David writes.

"The application of an increasing number of technologically advanced systems in the theatre space means a more challenging services installation programme."

David said these types of projects call for specialist construction expertise.

Spire St Anthony’s Hospital was delivered in 80 weeks in a live working environment.

The project team therefore had to mitigate logistical challenges, plan carefully and instigate flexible working hours to deliver the project without disruption.
