Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, Avrenim were appointed by Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to lead on implementation of changes to the design and usability of the emergency department and its facilities.

The brief was to install twenty-six new isolation bays across all departments. The bays itself were designed to house both Covid and potential Covid patients.

The project involved the engagement of a team to design and to strategically plan the complete refurbishment of major department and facilities to bring them to an Infection control approved standard. This involved a series of mechanical, electrical & building engineers collated through our highly knowledgeable and experienced teams.

Avrenim team worked closely with all key stakeholders within the Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Trust and with the aid of a specialist team of designers, we successfully completed design stage. This enabled us to provide a unique design solution which was then proposed to all heads of the major departments and key stakeholders.

Avrenim’s knowledge and experience of the existing healthcare environment abled to propose alterations to achieve all the logistical and technical interfaces to make this project a success.

Planning of the logistics proven to be crucial as the works were to be carried out in a live working emergency department. Working closely with all key stakeholders for the involved departments, we agreed a phased completion of the works spanning over a 12 month period. Our team of installers were able to commit to the Trust requirements surrounding the working obstacles within the project.

Strategic planning has been required throughout and has required a high volume of design and weekly progress meetings in order to meet both Trust and Avrenim’s objectives, this enabled our installation teams to meet programme and operational targets.

Avrenim’s efforts & endeavours in keeping the royal A&E Department fit for purpose throughout the pandemic are greatly appreciated by the trust, we would like to thank you for your dedication and commitment throughout the project and look forward to working with you in years ahead.
