St. Vincent's Hospital, Mountmellick

St. Vincent’s Hospital, Mountmellick, Co. Laois This project involved the design, procurement using New Form of Government Contract and project supervision of the installation of hot water pipework throughout a live block within the hospital to create a system that mitigated the risk of legionella.

We were required to replace pipework and sanitary-ware in ward area’s while they were occupied. The project required the replacement of the hot water system in the main kitchen of the hospital also whilst the kitchen continued to function.

In this live environment not only is there a large logistical challenge additionally there is a substantial risk associated with modifying water supplies and generating dust and the prevention of the spread of aspergillus in a hospital environment.
