The Princess Margaret Hospital is an established 80-bedded private hospital on Osborne Road, Windsor, with an existing floor area of some 6900 sq m on ground, first and second floors
With three existing operating theatres in a department hedged in by surrounding departments and a mobile theatre parked temporarily in the car park the hospital desperately required a new permanent operating theatre
The solution was to provide a new modular theatre suite built off-site (in Germany) and prefabricated in 5 sections. The sections were lifted into place onto prepared bases on the existing flat roof and final connections and internal fit out were completed on site.
The theatre suite comprises Operating Theatre, Anaesthetic Room, Dirty Utility, Preparation and Scrub-up Rooms, a 2-bed patient post operative Recovery area, staff changing facilities and Theatre Stores etc.
The new Theatre is linked to the existing wards at the second floor level by a single storey corridor and the project also included the refurbishment of this ward reception area.
Work started on site enabling works in January 2008, the theatre modules were delivered mid-June 2008 and the theatre handed over in September 2008.
