As this is an operating hospital with live wards and patients, SDS provided the flexibility
required to ensure the minimal downtime and inconvenience when matching the
architects’ requirements for the project.

a positive collaborative effort by everyone has ensured the Kingston Hospital is now
safe in the likeliness of a fire.
