The ward refurbishment of the 288 bed hospital is due to be completed over the next 3 years.Working along side Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions, Wandsworth will be acting as sub-contractor on this very prestigious project, with a dedicated contracts manager overseeing installation of equipment. Units will be supplied pre-piped and pre-wired at second fix level. Medical service columns will be pre-wired for mains cabling, nurse call, data and pre-piped for medical gases and fully tested and sealed before delivery to site. Once they are delivered to site, and only when required and ready for fitting, the medical service column can be hung on the wall and secured into position in a fraction of the time of a traditional medical service column fitting time.
