SDEC as we know it

Following the successful completion and decant of the previous ophthalmology unit into its new home, works are underway to transform and build the new SDEC (Same Day Emergency Care) to give St James’ Hospital some well needed extra space and new facilities to combat increasing bed pressures.

Let's take a peek behind the work scenes:

We’re steadily making progress through the planned programme of works, and it’s been amazing to see the difference from where we’ve started to where we are now!

Take a look at what’s been completed:
  • Successful co-ordination of crane works to fit the new Air-Handling Unit (AHU) to service the A&E department
  • Installation of roof steel pipework from plant room to AHU ready for installation
  • 98% demolition work complete for Phases 1 & 2
  • Screed floors 95% complete
  • 85% progression for stud wall partitions and skimming
  • Steelwork preparations for glazed screen installation
  • 75% ducting work complete
  • Over halfway through the electrical wiring works to service the new fire alarms and emergency lighting

Over the next two weeks

With 13 weeks to go, here’s a snippet of works to progress:
  • AHU installation to continue
  • Weekend working in physio
  • Further works for partition and skimming works
  • First-mist coating to walls
  • Mechanical and electrical work, continuing on the wiring and ducting services
