HESIS, one of the UK’s leading fire, security, mechanical & electrical maintenance firms, is supporting Integrated Health Projects (IHP) the JV between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine with the delivery of two temporary rainbow hospitals in Wales.
Working with its sister company – HE Simm – along with VINCI Construction UK, HESIS is installing fire alarm and crash call systems as well as PA equipment across the two sites.
The first, in Deeside, has seen an indoor ice rink transformed – which is part of the local leisure centre – into a 419 bed unit. Whilst the site at Bangor University will become a 229 bed facility – both will help the NHS in its frontline fight against the coronavirus.
HE Simm is playing its part in the delivery via the installation of mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) systems.
Barry Juggins, Managing Director, says of the firm’s contribution: “I feel very proud and privileged that we were asked to get involved in both of these projects, alongside our sister company HE Simm.
“I am extremely grateful to our colleagues who are working night and day to complete the work, to a very tight deadline.
“I am also very grateful to our loyal supply chain for getting on board to work with us, in particular GENT, who literally stopped work in their tracks to support on this very important project.
“Collaboration and relationships have really come to the fore in the last few weeks, all in the interests of the national effort, which is a real pleasure to see in what is a very testing time for us all.”
