New communications room completed on-site at busy London hospital, on time and in budget.
9 July 2020 – London, UK – Secure I.T. Environments Ltd, one of the UK’s leading design and build companies for modular, containerised and micro data centres, has today announced the completion of a new communications room project at Hammersmith Hospital, part of the Imperial College Healthcare Trust, which has over 12,000 staff, caring for around 1.5 million patients a year.
Secure I.T. Environments worked closely with the hospital to help identify the right location for the new communications room, deciding on a ground floor location that offered good access, as well as connectivity for the services needed.
The chosen room was fully stripped back and built to a design developed by Secure I.T. Environments that includes 6×19” cabinets, UPS, energy-efficient air conditioning systems in N+1 configuration, intelligent power distribution units and an environmental monitoring system. Secure I.T. Environments also provided the electrical infrastructure and structured cabling services for the project, as well as a room deep clean upon completion.
The new communications room was completed on time and within budget. It forms part of the Trust’s wider upgrade programme, of which Secure I.T. Environments also completed mechanical and electrical infrastructure upgrade works at its other hospitals.
Chris Wellfair, Projects Director at Secure I.T. Environments, commented, “Running any NHS project presents a number of challenges, especially when a site is operating 24/7/365. We have many years’ experience working with NHS Trusts in the UK, successfully delivering projects on sites where the public and staff are constantly present, and downtime is not an option. Those same skills help us deliver great projects for other sectors including retail, education, manufacturing and telecommunications.”
