HCP supplied 970m of radiant heating panels to the new £60m Bristol Heart Institute project. It is the largest project undertaken since the 1970s for the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.
HCP, a division of SAS International, supplied 970m of radiant heating panels to the project. Radiant heating was a new concept for the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust’s Estate but one which has been seen as offering real benefits in terms of infection control. The design is a significant development in making the wards easier to clean and reducing the cross infection risks associated with traditional wall-mounted radiator systems. The mounting of a heating system at high level can help meet Department of Health guidance on infection control.
Radiant heating systems are easy to access and their flat surfaces are easy to clean. Furthermore, radiant heating systems can free up valuable floor and wall space, leading to increased space flexibility. The client worked with Hoare Lea, M&E Consultants, and Haden Young, main contractors on the project.
