Upper Limb Studio

Project Title: Upper Limb Studio
Client: NHS
Value: 300000
Programme: April 2020

ES Moss were tasked with turning an office suite into state of the art therapy facilities for patients with severe spinal injuries at the world renown National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.  The Upper Limb Studios would be one of the first projects of its kind in the UK and was inspired by the writings of the actor Christopher Reeve.

A significant upgrade of the existing mechanical ventilation system had to be undertaken to ensure the patients were not at risk from varying temperature changes and these needed to be supplied from the roof void plant area which was extremely congested.  Other issues which had to be carefully planned were isolation and connections to existing mechanical and electrical services which also served live wards and treatment facilities in close proximity to the new rooms.

Works were carefully coordinated and much time was spent surveying and working out best services routes and services connections which had to be agreed and augmented by the NHS Estates Management team.  The outcome was a stunning new facility which included new mechanical ventilation, air conditioning, heating, electrical, data and plumbing services.  The Studios are fully equipped with interactive ceiling mounted audio visual screens, alternating coloured LED lighting around acoustic ceiling circles, new bespoke medical furniture, joinery, wash hand basins, hygienic wall cladding and flooring, fire rated partitions and ceilings, automated doors and access control systems.
