Waterloo delivers ventilation remedy for hospital refurb
The £170 million redevelopment of Glan Clwyd Hospital in North Wales has seen Waterloo Air Products provide a wide range of air terminal devices which met the exacting hygiene standards of a healthcare facility whilst ensuring the wellbeing and optimum comfort of patients.
Delivered by main contractor Laing O’Rourke, the seven-year project to redevelop the main hospital site in Bodelwyddan has seen the creation of a new emergency department, eleven new theatres, two new recovery areas, a new critical care unit, refurbished areas in radiology and a new dental services facility. In collaboration with M&E contractor Crownhouse Technologies, tasked with upgrading the hospital’s building services, Waterloo has provided over 600 of its air distribution products.
With efficient ventilation and air distribution imperative for patients, visitors and staff, a number of Waterloo products were specified for the project. These included louvre face diffusers which are multi-cone, multi-directional diffusers that easily mount in a lay-in ceiling. With the ability to remove the central core, allowing easy cleaning and maintenance, they provided the ideal solution to maintaining the highest-possible standards of hygiene in a healthcare environment.
In addition, the specification also saw Waterloo supply its vane swirl diffusers. Designed for rapid mixing of air in high ceiling areas (2.6m-4m) and ideal for controlling airflow, these diffusers feature adjustable deflectors enabling different discharge directions.
