Smoke & Fire Dampers at Great Western Hospital
Airvent Services’ relentless campaigning – to raise awareness of the RRO and the need for proper maintenance of fire safety equipment to ensure safety and legislative compliance – really seems to be paying off.
The latest organisation to be in touch regarding a previously-overlooked system of fire and smoke dampers is the health authority governing the Great Western Hospital in Swindon. Airvent Services 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, Airvent Services 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 the reputation for considerate working practises that defines Airvent Services’ engineers’ 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 our staff don’t cause disruption on site, but never more so than at a hospital site where lives literally hang in the balance.”
