HCP supplied 1,800 linear metres of anti-ligature radiant heating panels for two Peterborough Hospital PFI Projects.
HCP, a division of SAS International, recently supplied 1,800 linear metres of radiant heating panels to the City Care Centre, a community health centre run by NHS Peterborough and the Cavell Centre Mental Health Unit run by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT).
A mix of 575 standard and anti-ligature panels were used across both projects. In order to facilitate easier ordering, stock-holding and installation HCP developed a specially designed panel for the project. The design allowed for integration within a Tee grid ceiling and independent suspension as an anti-ligature panel.
As well as reducing patients’ opportunities for self-harm, the use of flat ceiling-mounted radiant heating helps to make wards easier to clean and reduce the cross-infection risks associated with traditional wall mounted units. Additionally wall and floor space was freed up leading to increased space flexibility.
Zisman Bowyer & Partners LLP were the consulting engineers and Nightingale Associates the architects for the new CCC and MHU.
