Case Study – Bristol Hospital

AHU Refurbishment – MEICA Division

Area: Bristol  Client: South Bristol Community Hospital

Northavon MEICA conducted a technical survey at south Bristol community hospital on behalf of the building owners. Isolating the supply to each of the ten AHU’s and undertaking a close inspection of each component’s condition to establish the feasibility of increasing the total air volumes that the units was delivering.

The AHU’s are located on the roof in an external plant area, only eight years since the original installation they were in poor condition with restricted access within each unit for component replacement, and constant water ingress making component condition even worse. It was decided that refurbishment of the existing AHU’s along with an upgrade of the associated  ductwork was demonstrated to be the most cost-effective option.

Due to the AHU location all of the new components and ductwork required craning onto the roof and manoeuvring into the plant area via restricted space and ina live hospital environment, the same was required for the removal of all old components and ductwork.

By utilising our expertise, offering unique insights into improving air quality, and reassuring the client that we could give them a fully functional system with minimal disruption the decision was made to proceed with the project.

Refurbishment of the existing AHU has extended the life expectancy of the units and improved the energy efficiencies. There is now adequate air being distributed around the building to ensure that the hospital is operating efficiently and compliantly.

From initial project consultation through to project completion and sign off the client was very satisfied and have since engaged us to complete further upgrades.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch and make an appointment to discuss your needs; whether for a one-off project or a fixed longer-term partnership. There are so many benefits that developers up and down the country are already tapping in to. We would be delighted to help you too.
