The brief

Briggs & Forrester delivered the refurbishment of levels 4 & 5 at the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre. Engineering Services undertook a full review of the design and incorporated all the B&F design requirements and standards in line with the ProCure 22 Healthcare Framework.

We undertook extensive surveys prior to the project commencing to minimise ‘unknowns’ hidden within the building fabric and worked closely with the client to organise ‘shut downs’ as the hospital environment remained ‘live’ throughout the delivery of the project minimising disruption to the hospital. The successful refurbishment of the old building has created bright ward areas, treatment rooms and waiting areas.

Briggs & Forrester were responsible for the mechanical strip out works, above ground drainage, domestic water services, LTHW heating, ventilation, medical gasses, electrical strip out works, electrical supply, sub-main distribution, wiring & containment systems, lighting installation, emergency lighting installation, small power installation, fire alarm system and structured cabling, alarm call systems, security, mechanical services installation, earthing, inspection, testing & commissioning.

Added value

In order to minimise disruption to the hospital, Engineering Services got involved early in this project carrying out survey works; organising logistics planning within a live hospital environment.

This project was carried out during the unprecedented Covid19 pandemic, requiring all Covid procedures to be followed to ensure everyone’s safety including patients and hospital staff.

What we did for this project...

We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.

The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.

We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
