SMP were the M&E designers on a new theatre suite installation project to create a laparoscopic theatre within an existing theatre complex. This project involved the remodelling of an old CSSD department central to four other, functioning, operating theatres following the decentralisation of the CSSD facilities.
The theatre was complex due to the differing cooling loads created by the laparoscopic media equipment, meaning the ventilation systems had to be split to provide local independent control of the preparation room.
The location of the site also created complexities due to it being located central to four operating theatres which had to be maintained throughout the project.
