Air handling units installed at One Born Every Minute hospital


Mansfield Pollard appointed to design and install systems as part of £25m investment at Southmead Hospital

Mansfield Pollard has been appointed by Whitehead Building Services (WBS) to design and install bespoke air handling units at Southmead Hospital as part of a £25m investment which supports the consolidation of pathology services with Public Health England.

The company supplied 15 air handling units, each of which had to comply with stringent HTM03 hospital specifications. They were installed to serve the main office and pathology laboratories.

The team at Mansfield Pollard worked closely with WBS on the design of the system and developed a joint plan that took the project from the design stage through to installation and commissioning.

Simon Drinkwater, senior contracts manager at Whitehead Building Services, said: "We were delighted to be appointed as the mechanical and electrical contractor for the Southmead Hospital pathology project. We then looked for organisations with whom we could partner and based on their reputation and track record as an air management specialist we chose to work with Mansfield Pollard, which was one of our key partners on the projects.

"We were pleased with the flexible approach and with the way they worked with us to develop an effective and efficient design."

Joanna Robinson, managing director at Mansfield Pollard, added: "This project is another example of how our collaborative approach together with the excellence of our technical solutions delivers real value for our customers.
