John Radcliffe Echocardiography Unit

Client: Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust

Architect: Gray Baynes & Shew

The new John Radcliffe Hospital Echocardiography Unit is part of the Oxford Heart Centre at the hospital and provides specialist facilities for trans-thoracic and trans-oesophageal echocardiography.

This was a complex refurbishment project on a live site and we had to ensure the existing hospital could remain fully operational during the works. We worked closely with the site maintenance contractor Scion, to ensure shutdowns and alterations to existing services took place out of hours.

Our detailed design included specialist services with medical gases, close control air-conditioning and isolated power systems and UPS for the Category 4 environments – all designed to fully comply with the latest NHS standards.
