Renovations at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow

The Princess Alexandra Hospital is in Harlow, Essex, and is a district general hospital with 501 beds, providing a comprehensive range of acute and specialist services. After a successful tender process, Tate and Morgan were awarded the building contract for the refurbishment of hospital buildings at the Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust. This refurbishment of the hospital buildings included renovating the main kitchen area, converting outdated bathrooms to wet rooms and installing new roofing systems on five of the buildings at the Harlow hospital.

The main kitchen refurbishment comprised the following

We were asked to refurbish the whole of the outdated kitchen at the hospital and this included a new suspended ceiling, hygienic wall cladding, covering exposed pipes with stainless steel surrounds and installing specialist hoarding to prevent contamination from the work section to the food prep area.

New ventilation system was installed in the kitchen

We upgraded the old ventilation systems to make them more in line with modern requirements in a hospital kitchen and we replaced the ventilation grills incorporated them into the new ceiling.

The kitchen was rewired, redecorated and new flooring installed

The whole kitchen was also rewired and then new commercial non-slip flooring laid. Finally, the finished kitchen was redecorated.

Tate and Morgan were also asked to undertake wet room conversions in three wards at Princess Alexandra Hospital that had outdated bathroom facilities. Tate & Morgan converted all three bathrooms to wet rooms ensuring that they complied with current health & safety regulations. The building works consisted of the following: –

  • Supply and install of DDA compliant wash basins and toilets
  • Installation of bespoke IPS panel system
  • Full compliant grab rails fitted as required.
  • Installation of commercial non-slip safety flooring
  • Extensive plumbing works required to conform with current regulations

Roof replacement for five hospital buildings

A further part of the building contract was replacement of the roofs on five of the hospital buildings.

Tate and Morgan erected scaffolding safely around the relevant hospital buildings, removed the existing roof covering and prepared the roofs for the new roofing. We supplied and fixed Steadmans AS35 insulating roofing with UPVC cover fascia boards to all sides. We also installed new guttering, with ridge and edge flashings and front edge flashings to divert water into the new gutters.
