Infection Control is a serious concern when construction or remediation activities are carried out in health care facilities. Infection caused by exposure to airborne dust particles contaminated with certain common mould species can cause severe illness or mortality in immunocompromised patients. It is imperative that any construction and maintenance work in hospitals be assessed at the planning stage for potential impacts and, where required, be performed under carefully controlled conditions.

Our areas of expertise in “infection control” are primarily related to work area isolation and decontamination to ensure that any dust (and mould) generated by the work is controlled and does not contaminate areas outside the construction work area.
