Countess of Chester Hospital completes £13m extension

An 18-month extension project worth £13m has been completed at the Countess of Chester Hospital, with the aim of providing overnight facilities for relatives, as well as a new endoscopy unit at ground level and a critical care unit on the first floor.

The new building, located at the back of the existing healthcare facility, features a layout whose design was based on the professional experience of end-users, with more than 200 staff providing input into the final design, a news report in the local media has revealed.

Sections of the building have been operational since late-March, following a hand-over by main contractor Integrated Health Projects; a joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine.

Peter Dodd, Project Manager for IHP, said: “We are delighted to have worked with the trust and to bring their vision to life. The expanded space will provide a modern and comfortable environment, which will help assist in patient recovery. This is a major step forward in the provision of quality healthcare, and we hope to work with the trust in the future.”

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.
