The Red Deer Regional Health Center Obstetrical Operating Rooms encompassed the redevelopment of the existing atrium and Maternal Newborn Department. The space was centrally located on the 2nd floor with no direct access to the outside so all demolition and new materials had to be brought to the space through an active hospital. As such, special considerations had to be taken to ensure infection and disease control protocols as well as public safety requirements were met. This included specially constructed barriers and negative air pressure that had to be monitored and maintained on a 24/7 basis.
The renovation included adding a new floor system within the 3 storey atrium space to create 2 new operating rooms, 3 recovery bays, clean and soiled holding rooms and a housekeeping room.
The new space was mechanically serviced by new air handling units installed in the mechanical penthouse. The existing medical gas system was expanded into this area. All mechanical and electrical work were tied into the existing Building Maintenance System
