Ramsay Healthcare UK is a leading provider of independent Hospitals in England, with a network of 22 acute facilities. The Ramsay Healthcare Rivers Hospital is located just off the M11 and is easily accessible from London and the Home Counties. The Hospital opened in 1992 and is equipped with the latest medical facilities for diagnosis and treatment, and has very high quality clinical standards including effective infection prevention measures. Rivers Hospital, Sawbridgeworth, has 4 fully equipped theatres for cutting edge surgery and a new day surgery suite for minor surgery. Module-AR Limited were awarded the task of designing, manufacturing and installing a single modular bay to be utilised as a CSSD Equipment Store.

Module-AR Limited worked closely with the clients’ Project Manager and Architect to provide high quality working environments for Consultants and staff, similar to those already provided within the existing hospitals. The building consisted of a CSSD Equipment Store room and a Transfer Lobby with 3 No. digital keypads for security. Polyflor vinyl flooring was installed for an easy to clean, robust & hard wearing surface and the floor loading throughout was 3.5kN/m².

HTM compliant sanitary ware was installed along with upgraded acoustic seals around all internal doors and partitions to minimise sound transference between rooms. A wet heating system linked through to the main Hospital via pipework-fed low surface temperature radiators. Both the waiting room and reception were land locked and so to provide natural light and ventilation Velux Ventilated roof lights were installed.

The external walls were clad in Plastisol (plastic coated steel) for a robust and maintenance-free exterior. The module itself was lifted in to position using a 150t all-terrain crane due to the location  of the structure.

Just 1 day was required for Module-AR Limited to deliver and install the module on site and 12 weeks to fully complete the project, greatly reducing site traffic & disturbance to the existing hospital buildings compared to traditional construction methods.
