G&H to deliver critical mechanical services to University College London Hospital’s emergency department

G&H Building Services has been appointed to work on the expansion of the accident and emergency department of University College London Hospital (UCLH).

It is part of continued works G&H Building Services has been involved in at the hospital having already delivered mechanical and electrical services to numerous phases of its reconfiguration over the past five years.

G&H Building Services has been appointed by the main contractor, the Russell Cawberry Group, securing a £600,000 contract to deliver a predesigned mechanical scheme for phases six and seven of the hospital’s development programme.

In total, ten phases will be completed.

G&H Building Services will install ventilation systems, heating, chilled water supplies, domestic hot and cold services, medical gases and the Building Management Systems.

It is part of UCLH’s wider £21.7 million redevelopment programme connecting the main building to the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson wing.

Some internal areas of the emergency department are also being reconfigured to allow UCLH to make best use of the new expanded areas once completed.

Steve Bainbridge, Contracts Manager at G&H Building Services, said: “We have been appointed because of our track record of delivering high quality mechanical services in live hospital environments without causing any disruption to patients or staff.

“We have worked on several parts of UCLH’s expansion programme for the Russell Cawberry Group and this is another critical area in the hospital where only the best building services are good enough.

“We also have great experience working in Central London and managing the logistical challenges it presents; project managing the delivery of materials to a site with restricted parking, access and storage.”

G&H Building Services is scheduled to finish at the end of the year with patients able to use the new facility in 2018.
