Phase I Handover a Piece of Cake ..

Posted on

Phase one handover of this £ 35 Million construction project has been achieved and some could say ” It was a piece of cake ” as Kevin Sykes found who was the Project Director for the scheme and also the Chef who made this very artistic cake as a celebration for the team on its achievement. In truth it was not as easy as this would suggest. It was a very difficult project with extensive services being installed and with an overall tight programme to be achieved. So to get this stage handed over was a testament to all our people of all disciplines working hand in hand with BAM Construction and with whom we enjoyed working with very much indeed.

And so now we plough on with Phase 2 with a target completion in 2016 and we are relishing the challenges this brings.

The £ 35 Million construction project is now transforming the hospitals emergency and urgent care services, creating the most modern Emergency Department in the region and offering state-of-the-art facilities for patients. Around 85,000 patients are treated at Aintree’s Emergency Department every year, and this hospital, along with the Royal Liverpool Hospital and the Walton Centre, forms the Cheshire and Merseyside Major Trauma Centre collaborative. When complete it will provide a world class facility offering care for the most seriously ill patients. The new development when it is complete in 2016 will be a two storey building for the Emergency Department, Critical Care, Cardiology Departments and a Fracture Clinic. The centre will have more diagnostic equipment to help provide swifter treatment to patients. Phase I involved the installation of the following services : Phase 2 has similar services.

Electric Mains Distribution, New Generator Installation, General and Emergency Lighting, Nurse Call, Bedhead Pendant and Trunking, Door Access, CCTV Installation, Heating and Ventilation, Public Health, Sanitary Fittings, Steam and Condensate, VRF Cooling, Medical Gases, Gas Distribution, Replacement Theatre Air Handling Plant, Hot and Cold Water, Building Management Systems, Chilled Water Installation, Thermal Insulation and full Commissioning and setting to work all services.

Working alonside BAM Construction on a scheme designed by Steven Hunt Associates we are providing all the above over a two year on site programme and when complete will be another impressive Health Sector project

Total Value Mechanical and Electrical – £ 8.0 Million
