Whipps Cross Hospital

Whips Cross Hospital

The works at Whipps Cross Hospital included reprovision and relocation of the existing heating, hot water & softened cold water services serving the Victorian Block from the calorifier room located in the South West corner to the existing A&E Thermal Plantroom. All works were undertaken within a live hospital meaning safety of staff and the general public was paramount.

Sequence of works:

  • Enabling Works – Installation of connection points so that once all new plant had been installed the downtime for changeover was kept to a minimum.
  • New Works – Installation of new Steam to LTHW heat exchangers and associated pumps. Installation of new Steam to HWS heat exchangers and associated pumps. Installation of new steam & condensate distribution mains up to the connection points provided under the enabling works.
  • Change-over – Once the new system had been installed, commissioned and switched over, the existing plant was fully decommissioned.
