Project Overview

The new state of the art energy centre, operated by EDF Energy, will provide power, heating and hot water for the new hospital, using a highly efficient and lower carbon combined heat and power plant.

Brief scope of works

Large thermal stores will be used to store excess heat generated by the plant and allow it to be used in the hospital when it is needed – as well as being able to export any power not used back to the national grid. The project also included the erection of a detached energy centre, bridged link to the existing Highlands Building at level 01 & internal alterations & refurbishment to the Highlands Building.

SOCOTEC Building Control Ltd were able to engage fully with the Design Team, headed by the Architects IBI Group (London) and the Design & Build Contractors Integrated Health Projects / Vinci Construction (UK) Ltd, from the very start through to completion. This cooperation ensured that the building would meet the applicable requirements of the Building Regulations but just as importantly any constraints posed by the Building Regulations.
