OVERVIEW

In early 2019 following a competitive tendering process, ECG were delighted to be awarded the contract to undertake the replacement of water tanks at University Hospital Crosshouse in Kilmarnock on behalf of NHS Ayrshire & Arran. Throughout the post-tender evaluation period, ECG worked with the client to identify and ensure all opportunities for potential cost-savings were achieved in line with NHS Ayrshire & Arran’s tight budgetary requirements. ECG held a pre-start meeting with NHS Ayrshire & Arran involving key personnel from our Projects Department in order to ensure all of the unique requirements of this project were being satisfied before commencing the works, encompassing: • Phased removal of existing tanks; • Phased installation of new tanks; • Water filtration works; • Phased pipework alterations to suit new installations; • Replacement of water level controls; • New BMS interfaces ; • Demolition of existing concrete walls, removal of catwalks and ladders and subsequent reinstatement, new steel framework for tank support and tanking of affected parts of floors and walls; • Associated electrical works; • Flushing, leachate flushing, disinfection, water sampling and testing.
