New corridor lighting, Yeovil District Hospital, Somerset
This project was to upgrade the general and emergency lighting to all the corridors in the hospital.
These works were carried out whilst the hospital was open.
Consequently works had to be programmed so as not to disturb the normal running of the hospital or to cause disturbance to patients.
The Hospital comprises 10 floors plus the adjoining women’s hospital.
Asbestos was found to some ceilings, mainly fire exit routes, and this was removed by a licensed asbestos removal company as part of these works.
