Heating zones and energy management systems can help hospitals save millions on energy

Energy management systems capable of controlling the specific temperature in each room are a must for any modern healthcare facility, as is the case with The Harbour building, whose construction was recently completed.

Developers Integrated Health Projects (IHP) successfully commissioned the new £40 million mental health unit, which will be used by the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

The Harbour is located on the Whyndyke Farm site, just off the M55 in Blackpool, and will provide a total of 154 beds. The development provides modernised inpatient mental health services and improves the quality of care it delivers.

The building is mainly single storey with administration services located on the first floor.

Alistair Rose, Project Director for The Harbour at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust said: “It has been a pleasure working with the construction team on the development of The Harbour and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”

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.
