Project Details

The Dresden Center for Cardiology was furnished with a new interdisciplinary hybrid operating room. For that purpose, the second floor having a total area of 400m2 was stripped down to the joists and studs and remodeled during day-to-day business. The remodeling of the new operating room had taken 18 weeks to be completed and ready to use. The process of remodeling underwent strict standards of cleanroom classifications (E DIN 1946-4 -Ia). For this purpose, a fully integrated diffuser system for low turbulance was installed above the entire restricted safety area in the operating room. The work inculded new lavatories, induction/reversal and recovery rooms, as well as a control room. Sanitary and changing rooms with an integrated air lock and an additional room which houses an electronic distribution board were built as an independent facility. The step-by-step remodeling process had been performed in a compartmentalization guaranteeing a permanent dust-free air outside that area. The new operating room is constructed as a fire compartment on its own. We are proud to say that the new hybrid operating room had been completed within very short time due to our employees' dedication and work on weekends.

Our work included:  


Structural Engineering:

  • removing and gutting of old structure
  • drywalls (partially with fire resistant quality)
  • ceiling systems with increased hygiene requirements
  • standard and sliding doors
  • windows with fire resistant quality (operating rooms)
  • flooring
  • painting
  • tiling


Sanitary and Heating Facilities:

Existing lines manage hot and cold water supply to all sanitary facilities. Their fittings are kept being used. New lines were laid out in the dropped ceiling. New radiators were installed accordingly to the sanitary facilities in the existing heating network.  

Ventilation System:

In order to manage inlet and exhaust air of the new operating area, an additional ventilation unit was installed on level E4. Thus, the ventilation system with a fully integrated diffuser system for low turbulance meets European standards of cleanroom classifications (E DIN 1946-4).  

Electronic Facilities:

New mains and emergency power distribution units were installed and integrated in the existing system in order to connect consumer units of the hybrid operating room with the power grid. These new power distribution units were installed accordingly to the existing distributors in the system. Also, an additional emergency power system was added to the previous power system. By expanding main and emergency power distribution units due to the new design and use of the rooms, the supply of consumers outside the operating room is ensured.

Medical Gases:

By installing additional fittings in the existing network, various medical gases were added to the system.
