Project Information


This £3m M&E installation brings Greenwich Intermediate Care Unit (GICU), GPs surgeries, outpatient and social care together under one roof. The project also involved provision of all safety and security systems, including a fully programmable fire alarm, intruder alarm system, access control and door entry system.

The main energy source for the hospital’s domestic hot water supply is supplied by a 20kW CHP unit, supplemented by two gas-fired condensing boilers. LJJ also installed two plate heat exchangers for the domestic hot water and a 25,000 litre capacity cold water storage tank to give the hospital security of water supply even in the event of an interruption to the mains.

Ventilation is provided by five air handling units fed by a single chiller, with individual air extract units for the second floor offices while the heating system is delivered via a combination of radiators and radiant panels.

LJJ also installed a full electrical distribution system supported and backed up by a diesel standby generator, a UPS (uninterrupted power supply), an IPS (Isolated Power Supply) and a MEIGaN earthing system.

LJJ was also installed a wide range of HTM (Healthcare Technical Memorandum) compliant electrical services, including EPR surgeons’ panels, nurse call, bed head trunking and surgical, treatment and inspection lighting.
