  1. 1. Trying to Build a Quality PFI Tricia Down and David Powell
  2. 2. Innovation and Patient Care: New facilities should apply radical, cutting edge design to provide state-of-the–art environments geared for top performance in patient care. The facilities should provide for standardisation and flexibility. Flexibility: Environments should be extremely flexible to respond to changes in the way healthcare is provided. The Trust is determined to create an environment that can constantly evolve and adapt. Clear Welcoming Urban Site: The hospital site should be welcoming and logically laid-out to the best principles of urban design and landscape design. Facilities and spaces should create an environment within the site boundary that uplifts, is consistent with and blends with the external environment and does not jar. New facilities and buildings should sit comfortably within the site master-plan. Connecting the Inside to the Outside: The inside of the facilities should be connected and in harmony with the outside with use of landscaped courtyards, sympathetic glazing, open and interesting circulation, and non institutional patient and staff areas. Excellent Finishes: The finishes within the facilities should be intelligently planned and executed, avoid institutional blandness, exemplary in terms of use of materials and workmanship and significantly above the normal hospital standard. Sustainable Development: The facilities should achieve the highest standards of energy efficiency and a minimal carbon output. Maximum use should be made of sustainable practices during construction and for the minimisation of the operational carbon footprint. They should
  3. 3. • Minimum 2.7 floor to finished ceiling height in smaller rooms or technical rooms such as labs, but aim for 3m in larger rooms, open plan offices, seminar rooms and public spaces and 3.1m to 3.4 in rooms such as theatres and catheter labs. • Preference for plasterboard ceilings where possible, if not then plasterboard margin with tiles. Check for the number and layout of access panels • If tiles are used, larger format tiles preferred – preferably planks • Tiles should be flush edged or tegular. Avoid standard lay-in tiles. • Where tegular tiles are cut, ensure there is a good proposal for how the edge is finished • Be careful about tape and jointed plasterboard where there is a lot of light washing down on the wall (natural or artificial). Joints need to be invisible. Encourage use of bevelled joint to all four edges. These are now available. • Consider locations for art and other wall mounted articles (notice boards, leaflet racks etc) very early on so they can all be co-ordinated • Use paint specific to the need. Matt paint is the preference. • Only use specialist paints in those areas that require it. Be very careful about the use of high gloss resilient paints such as Armoursheen as they can show every brush mark and are very difficult to remove.
  4. 4. Reception Desks • Good quality, durable solutions required. Higher initial outlay recovered over course of life of good quality product. • Ensure sufficient contrast between floors, desk carcass and desk top. Check requirements for DDA access. • Avoid stainless steel plinths which can be confusing for visually impaired. Trunking • Avoid trunking wherever possible unless flexibility dictates otherwise. • Go for an elegant solution if it is required, minimising joints between pieces. • Consider the effect of trunking on the architecture – for example, does it have to cross tall windows or are risers required? Balustrade s • Capping to balustrades - if wood is selected, an agreed level of acceptable variance in the colour and texture of the wood should be agreed up front. Service access • Be clear about whether staircases and corridors really are only for service access as their level of finish will be far inferior to public staircases Fixtures • Coat hooks – ensure robust but attractive. Check spacing – is there room for coats? • Sockets – if DDA sockets are required in one part of a room, use the same sockets throughout the room. • Where final procurement of fixtures is outstanding, assume worst case scenarios to ensure that space is available
  5. 5. Ward corridor Overall ward corridor Incomplete (ceiling, flooring including bedroom thresholds, perch and associated lighting, handrails, wall and corner protection) • Items to be amended or added. Workmanship to be reviewed by the Trust and amendments agreed. Ceiling at bedroom entrance Ceiling missing • Item to be added. Workmanship to be reviewed by the Trust and amendments agreed. Inspection doors Paintwork and sealant of architrave to walls not complete • Workmanship to be reviewed by the Trust and amendments agreed. Frame has very visible joints • Butt joints to head of painted frame required. Architrave profile is obtrusive • Width and projection to be minimised so that the doors and details become less apparent. Choice of ironmongery • To be consistent with Building Specification/RDD. Door seals partially missing • . All seals to be provided to meet acoustic and fire protection requirements Tape & joint wall Visible horizontal joint at lower half of wall • Achieve consistent standard of finish to match other joints in this wall.
