Earl Mountbatten Hospice required extra space for its patients, visitors and staff which resulted in a plan for the demolition of certain areas and an extension to the building. Mountjoy won the opportunity to carry out the project in June 2013.
Mountjoy had been providing reactive building and engineering maintenance, minor improvement and planned maintenance works for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice since 2012. Our team were aware of the constraints of the site and the need for minimal disruption to everyone based there.
The alterations at the Hospice encompass day care areas, offices, treatment rooms, washrooms and WCs, as well as a meeting room and staff kitchen areas.
It also includes the existing reception areas, chapel of rest, waiting rooms and a new family accommodation suite.
The works involve the strip out of existing fixtures and fittings, demolishing partitions and external walls to increase structural openings as well as replacing external doors and windows. Externally there is the demolition of the two-storey lodge located adjacent to the main entrance as well as the construction of a new steel-framed storage facility.
The eight-month project also included landscaping and the creation of a larger carpark.
