Powertecnique supports ‘greatest redevelopment in Great Ormond Street Hospital’s history’

Powertecnique supports ‘greatest redevelopment in Great Ormond Street Hospital’s history’ 17/06/2013 12:00:00

The Southwood Building opened in 1938 and is the oldest clinical building in London. It houses more than half of all inpatient wards and is currently under redevelopment to provide much more spacious facilities for patients, family and staff. It will also be used to continue the vital research at the hospital. GOSH has pioneered many breakthroughs in research such as the opening of the first heart and lung unit in 1947 and the first leukaemia research unit in 1961.

Powertecnique is working through installation experts, Mechanical Services Ltd to maintain the equipment on the site, which includes a bypass switch and remote alarm panel which links to the building management system (BMS) and raises an alarm if there is a problem with the system, or if the batteries need replacing.

Mark Hamilton, hardware sales account manager at Powertecnique comments: “The hospital needed us to move fast, so we put our quote together with Mechanical Services and it was sent and approved by the customer within two days. One of our engineers was on site shortly afterwards to deliver and commission the equipment, and the whole project was installed and completed within one month – which included a busy holiday period. At Powertecnique, we are always prepared to work unsociable hours to get a job like this done.”
