CASE STUDY

Restorative | Dental Clinic Refurbishment

In June 2018 Avrenim FM were appointed by the Royal Liverpool Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust (RLBUH) to deliver the substantial refurbishment and modernisation of the existing Restorative 1 Dental Clinic within the Royal Liverpool Dental Hospital, to deliver a Clinic for the needs of students, patients, public and staff at its heart.

Avrenim worked alongside RLBUH and their design team partners and staff working within the existing Clinic through a series of workshops and option appraisals to produce the optimum design for the end user.

The works involved the reconfiguration and refurbishment of the existing Restorative 1 Dental Clinic, including nineteen new dental surgery teaching bays, new dental chairs, a side surgery and pharmacy including all Mechanical and Electrical services.

Handover took on programme, following a sectional completion to allow the early installation of state-of -the-art Dental Chairs. The project was delivered safely, with a nil Accident Frequency Rate, on budget and to high quality standards.

The facility is used by the Liverpool University School of Dentistry and as such has involved significant stakeholder management.

The early appointment of Avrenim and their team enabled early engagement and a full buy-in from the whole project team in order to fully understand and realise the Client’s needs. A major key to success was the proactive and engaged client team who understood the importance of early-decision making and the need to really work with the delivery team.

“The Avrenim team project managed the full refurbishment of one of our large open planned clinics at the Dental Hospital in Summer 2018. Despite the extremely challenging timeframe and complexity of maintaining our services for patients whilst significant work was undertaken, Ray Doyle, Project Manager, not only delivered on time but engaged the hospital team throughout. I am delighted with our new facility and would like to thank Ray and the team for their professionalism and fantastic result!”
