Completion January 2021

Pinington Limited were appointed as main building contractor to undertake a full refurbishment of theatre 3 at Westmorland General Hospital starting in June 2020 and completion in January 2021.


The project was extremely complex due to the location of the existing theatre on site, proximity to other live theatres and complexity of the work required. The work itself included a full strip out of the existing theatre, anaesthetics room, drugs prep areas, scrub room, corridors and exit bays. Due to the location of the works and having no access to the work area from any internal routes through the hospital the existing roof coverings were removed a tented watertight scaffold erected and external scaffold access to facilitate access to the works are for the duration of works.


A mezzanine plantroom then had to be formed within the ceiling / soffit above the ceiling of the theatre to house a new mechanical and electrical plantroom to serve the newly refurbished operating theatre. The new plantroom included a new air handling unit, new ductwork and ventilation system, medical gas installation, medical pendant installation along with a full electrical re-wire and BMS controls to serve the new plant.


The finished project shows the hard work put in by all Pinington staff, sub-contractors, design team and last but not least a very accommodating client!
