St. Mary’s Hospital Portsmouth – NHS
This purpose designed facility is part of the Governments Independent Treatment Centre programme, brought in to target reducing patient waiting times by increasing capacity within the NHS.
The centre contains a broad assortment of NHS services such as a Walk-In Advice Centre, X-Ray & Ultrasound facilities and a Minor Injuries Unit.
Mechanical & Electrical installations were completed on site in 27 weeks, one week ahead of programme and defect free, a major accomplishment for all involved.
The design content of this project involved the full Design & Build of the complete M&E services, including HV installation, Mains & Sub Main Distribution, Stand-by Generation, General Lighting, Addressable Emergency Lighting, Fire Detection systems, Access Control, Bedhead services, Nurse Call Systems, Medical Gases, Ventilation systems, Air Conditioning, UPS/IPS Systems.
The design was to achieve a workable M&E installation, fully compliant to both the British Standards and HTM Guidelines. To achieve this a high level of co-ordination, the design team members were required to ensure all elements of the M&E services were included, and specifically set out in various zonal areas.
The 2 storey facility containing numerous cellular spaces/areas on each floor required a fully addressable emergency lighting system. We designed a system that would report and print all test procedures including any failures via an installed software package to the FM company from which any corrective maintenance can be carried out.
