Bradford newborn unit to undergo massive £1.8m energy efficient makeover

A Bradford newborn hospital unit is about to undergo an energy-saving £1.8 million makeover that will take nine months to deliver, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Work on the Women’s and Newborn Unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI), part of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, is due to start in spring next year and hospital managers hope the project, which only recently got planning permission, will help reduce heating costs.

The project would be addressing issues with heat loss, draughts, noise and leaks, allowing the hospital to conserve energy and cut costs.

Shane Embleton, Programme Manager at the Trust, said: “The exciting cladding proposals, using a mixture of bold colours, were chosen by the staff at the Trust and this work will give one of our major landmarks a welcome facelift.”

Any modern building (and especially those in the healthcare sector) that require the implementation of some very comprehensive and effective energy management systems, should also seriously consider putting in specific zoning measures, and that’s exactly where the HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves can really come in handy.

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves represent a very good solution for the healthcare industry, where energy costs are 2nd only to labour costs. That’s because the TRVs can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.
