St Pancras Hospital – Mary Rankin Unit, 1st Floor Ophthalmology Department
Summary of Project:
The Ophthalmology department in the Mary Rankin building of St Pancras Hospital required the design, coordination, and installation of mechanical and electrical services as part of the improvement works. The areas that needed to be supplied comprised of four consulting rooms, a waiting area, a reception, an injection room, a laser room, a retinal image room, an Orthoptic room and a fields room. The works also required a particular emphasis on the detailed design coordination of all of the individual building services because of a relatively low ceiling void.
Some of the electrical services that were installed included normal and emergency lighting throughout, small power, the modification of the existing 7 way basement non-essential MCCB panel to incorporate an additional 100A MCCB and energy meter, a new 35mm 4C LSF / SWA + 16mm CPC from the existing 7 way basement non-essential MCCB panel to supply a new 12 way non-essential distribution board (FP4) within the Ophthalmology department. A few of the electrical systems that were installed included Access control/video intercom, fire alarm, nurse call, TV/aerial, voice/data, and induction loop.
Some of the mechanical systems that were installed included a mechanical ventilation plant for the first floor Ophthalmology unit, a VRF system comprising of seven indoor units and one outdoor for heating and cooling, domestic services, above Ground Drainage that was taken to existing underground systems, condensate drains from the VRF cooling coils, and the removal of existing LTHW radiators. The provision of a fully coordinated detailing between the building services and the various building/architectural/structural components was also needed.
