Healthcare Estates Engineering

MGPS compressors, healthcare engineering

Healthcare buildings are complex with multiple disciplines involved. A solid understanding of legislation and site regulation is essential to maintain a facility or deliver a project that ensures patients are given the safest environment possible in order to achieve service excellence.

With over 20 years of experience in Healthcare Building Services, we can offer design and management services for ventilation, medical gasses, decontamination and fire services.

Medical Gases

With extensive experience in the medical gasses sectors, from being APs to delivering major refurbishment projects, we can offer a comprehensive audit and review of existing services; design solutions based on 02-01: Medical gas pipeline systems Part A: Design, installation, validation and verification and operations services based on 02-01: Medical gas pipeline systems Part A: Design, installation, validation and verification.

We understand the complexity involved in medical gas works and the criticality in providing patients a safe environment.

Authorised Persons (AP) Duties

We can provide Authorised Person Medical Gas Pipe System (MGPS) engineers for your site on an in-house basis or for back-up cover. Our APs can ensure that new designs conform to HTM02-01. We provide full coverage of AP duties from day to day running of a site, permit creation, site audits ensuring plant is operating correctly and periodic quality control testing is complete and producing operational management and procedure policy.

MGPS Design Services

Design and planning services can be offered for projects of any size. We have proven experience of undertaking complex design projects with minimal disruption to front line services, co-ordinating MGPS works within larger refurbishment projects while maintaining demanding schedules.

Inventory and Site Surveys

We can undertake site surveys to provide as installed CAD drawings of the MGPS showing main sections and branches, departments served, control valves, terminal units and alarm systems for each medical gas service as required by HTM 02-01 and Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000.

Ventilation Systems

Ventilation systems for hospital and healthcare facilities have special requirements because of the susceptibility of patients to infection. Ventilation systems play an important role in providing a clean, safe and comfortable environment for recovery.

Poorly functioning ventilation systems supplying operating theatres not only adds unnecessary burden to healthcare facilities operational costs, it may also give rise to high infection rates and subsequent unnecessary sufferings to patients. Therefore, it has always been a complex task to plan and design an operating theatre that provides ultra clean ventilation systems, low operating and installation costs.

Validation & Verification

Checking on the performance of ventilation systems in Healthcare gives confidence to clients and organisations that their ventilation systems are fit for purpose and meet the requirements of statutory regulation, standards and published guidance in HTM 03-01.

Verification standards gives a clear understanding what is needed to be able to demonstrate to others (if carried out correctly) that the annual checks as required by HTM 03-01 have been completed and reported on clearly.

Authorised Persons (AP) Duties

We can provide Authorised Person Ventilation engineers for your site on an in-house basis or for back-up cover. Our APs can ensure that new designs conform to HTM 03-01. We provide full coverage of AP duties from day to day running of a site, permit creation, site audits ensuring plant is operating correctly and periodic quality control testing is complete and producing operational management and procedure policy.

Specialised Ventilation Design Services

Design and planning services can be offered for projects of any size.
