Design, Construction and Fit Out
Merit was the principal contractor for the turnkey design and construction of the new Sterile Services Department (SSD) for Synergy Health at Sheffield. The primary role of the facility is the sterilisation of NHS operating theatre equipment. Merit was responsible for the design of the unit to HBN 13.
The unit was a 2000m2 class 8 cleanroom environment and required for gowning, decontamination, sterilising and packing. The unit required specialist systems to ensure water quality for use in the decontamination process which included the installation of an ultrawave ultrasonic cleaner and RO Water System Designed to HTM2031.
In addition to the unit Merit designed and installed a hazardous effluent system that ensured the organic matter and potential microorganisms were captured and treated appropriately.
