DCUK FM were commissioned to clean and repair the air handling units and clean all the associated ventilation systems. Also part of the scope was to remove or encapsulate any asbestos containing materials that had an impact on the ventilation systems.
We took on the role of CDM coordinator and principal contractor at our client’s request.
All systems were cleaned and re furbished while the hospital remained fully functional, without incident, on time and within budget.
Working within an operational Hospital increased the risk to Hospital Staff, the public & patients alike. However, the hospital was able to remain operational with minimum disruption due to our flexibility and working 24hours a day.
DCUK FM carried out this work out of normal working hours over four months, working seven days a week. The completed project involved cleaning twelve systems over ten floors covering a total foot print of more than 17,000 square metres.
Summary of works:
All AHU chambers, fog coils, chiller coils, heat exchangers, batteries, dampers, fans and attenuators were cleaned throughout. The AHU’s were also tested for operational efficiency.
Decontamination of asbestos contaminated ductwork
Bespoke design and build of fire doors including the framing and other associated refurbishment works
Ensuring the hospital continued to operate smoothly with no disruption
Continuous progress meetings throughout the period of the project
