Accident & Emergency Department

Royal Preston Hospital, Lancashire

Client : Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Value : £1.3 Million

Redesign of the Accident and Emergency facilities at one of the busiest hospitals in Lancashire. Royal Preston Hospital provides healthcare services to 370,000 local people and 1.5 million people across Lancashire.

FWP prepared a modern yet robust scheme for the creation of separate adult and children’s services, a new ambulance drop off area, reception, waiting and assessment rooms. A new floating lightweight canopy provides accent and shelter to the three new entrance locations. Digital wallpapers and artwork enhance the interiors. Blezard provided comprehensive mechanical and electrical design services in conjunction with our designers.

A major consideration of the project was to redevelop the facilities whilst ensuring that the department remained fully functional with minimal disturbance during the 24 week contract.
