The scope of work for this project at Haslemere Community Hospital encompassed a complete replacement of all roofs, as well as the replacement of windows and repairs and decorations to the external façade. The hospital offers a comprehensive range of medical, clinical, and surgical services to a local population of more than 40,000 individuals.
The primary objective of this project was to install a new roofing system for all buildings in the hospital. This involved a complete removal of the existing coverings, the installation of new TLX Gold insulation between the rafters, new timber batons, and the use of reclaimed clay tiles with new lead detailing throughout.
Additionally, the project included the replacement of all existing Crittal windows with modern, factory-finished, double-glazed aluminum units. The brick elevations were subject to specialist TORC cleaning, followed by comprehensive masonry repairs to enhance the building's facades. The project also included the replacement of existing metal staircases with new galvanized steel fire escape systems due to the end of their design life.
Given the hospital's 24/7 operation, the West 1 delivery team ensured that work packages and associated supplier deliveries were carefully coordinated to minimize disruptions that could affect hospital operations. Furthermore, the works were phased to ensure that the roof's integrity and weatherproof properties were maintained at all times.
