Smoke and Fire Dampers at Great Western Hospital

Brakel Airvent’s relentless campaigning to raise awareness of the RRO and the need for proper maintenance of fire safety equipment in ensuring safety and legislative compliance really seems to be paying off.

One organisation to be in touch regarding a system of fire and smoke dampers that was particularly difficult to manage – due to ongoing building developments and refurbishments – is the health authority governing the large Great Western Hospital in Swindon. Brakel Airvent was appointed to review the site, looking for dampers within ductwork beyond false ceilings and within vertical risers, to create asset lists and maintenance plans.

Working with Chubb Mechanical, Brakel Airvent approached the site with particular caution; it was vitally important that medical activities at the hospital were not interfered with during works, necessitating careful work scheduling and flexible working practises.

By combining years of experience in damper service and maintenance with a reputation for considerate working practises that defines Brakel Airvent’s engineers’ hands-on approach, the wide-ranging project was completed in line with budget and schedule expectations, with minimal disruption to patient care.

It’s always important that maintenance staff don’t cause disruption on site, but never more so than at a hospital site where lives literally hang in the balance.
