CONTRACT NEWS OPERATION CLIMATE CONTROL A pair of landmark projects designed to enhance temperature control at private hospitals are leveraging the attributes of Priva Blue ID BMS (building management system) technology. Both owned by BMI Healthcare, Fawkham Manor Hospital near Dartford, Kent, and Chiltern Hospital near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, are now enjoying much improved climate control – a major advantage in many operating theatre procedures. When Priva partner Cube Controls of Worthing was invited to get involved with the BMI Healthcare projects by ICS Cool Energy, an established provider of complete temperature control solutions, the company had no hesitation in recommending Priva Blue ID. ‘In our experience, not only is Priva more cost effective than other BMS technologies, it is very well suited to upgrade projects,’ explained Tony Williams, founder and director of Cube Controls. ‘Furthermore, the modularity of Priva Blue ID makes it fl exible and easy to use.’ Priva Blue ID hardware consists of a base on which individual functional modules, containing all mission critical components, can be installed. Wiring takes place on the base, which is robust and insensitive to failures.

Prolojik’s involvement included both shell, core and client fi t-out of the 97,600ft 2 new build offi ce development, now taken by media company Publicis Groupe. It completed in autumn 2016 and features Prolojik’s networked DALI lighting control solution, which provides full control and emergency monitoring of the building’s effi ciently designed lighting installation. Specifi ed by M&E consulting engineers at professional services fi rm Arup, Prolojik’s Networked DALI system was selected because of its open protocol design, allowing any in-house engineer or third party contractor to access, maintain and adapt the system in the future. It is also highly resource effi cient to use open protocol technology when integrating multiple control products, offering speed of installation and scalability throughout all levels within a building’s architecture for highly sophisticated controls integration and data export. The high specifi cation product and fi t-out design were tailored to the requirements of the building by Prolojik’s in-house engineers, in conjunction with independent building consultancy MHBC. The fi t-out was facilitated by international construction services company ISG Fit-Out. Prolojik was chosen due to the compact design of the equipment, ensuring the electrical risers didn’t become too tight for other equipment needed.
