Client: University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust
The Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) is a teaching hospital with close links to Bristol University and provides acute medicine and surgery, critical care, trauma, orthopaedic and accident and emergency services to the population of Bristol. It also provides the centre for cardio-thoracic services for the south west and for cystic fibrosis care in the Severn area.
Some of the contracts we have been / are currently involved in are:
Replacement of AC units to Wards 10 & 14 at Bristol Royal Infirmary, Upper Maudlin St, Bristol.
The works were generally to provide Mechanical & Electrical Services for the replacement of the VRF air conditioning equipment within Wards 10 & 14, Bristol Royal Infirmary
These works were carried out whilst the hospital was open. Consequently, works had to be programmed so as not to disturb the normal running of the hospital or to cause disturbance to patients.
Replacement of Chillers to Queens Building 7th Floor Roof at Bristol Royal Infirmary, Upper Maudlin St, Bristol.
The purpose of this project is to replace existing external air cooled chillers with new plant, including associated automatic fill sets, circulation pumps, pipework and electrical services adaptations to suit.
The main risk with this contract is the craning up of the new cooler units to the roof and removal of existing. This will have to be carried out from the main road outside the hospital. Consequently, the correct road closure procedures must be adopted and licences sought.
This lifting operation must be carefully controlled to ensure the safety of the general public as well as hospital staff and patients.
This is being done in May & June 2016

These works were within a multi occupancy office block. The other tenants were not to be adversely affected by these works.
