THE CHALLANGE

As a company, we are committed to achieving health and safety excellence and are continually working towards a zero injury rate. Therefore, supporting solutions that eliminate the risk of injury and the spread of infection is a top priority for Bouygues E&S. That is why we have partnered with the company Trovex who supply hygienic integrated plumbing systems, fire-rated door sets and wall-cladding solutions. The Trovex Hygipod system has been designed with hygiene, infection control and longevity in mind, meaning our client and site teams will benefit from safer and more reliable working conditions.

OUR SOLUTION

Recent events such as the Covid-19 outbreak has prompted businesses, especially in the Healthcare sector, to reconsider their building’s infrastructure and working environment. This is to ensure employees are working in safer and more reliable conditions as offices and public spaces begin to re-open.

Those who work in a hospital environment are most at risk of catching infectious diseases. Thus, finding innovative solutions to reduce this risk is paramount to the health and wellbeing of all hospital users.

Trovex’s Hygipod IPS units are delivered prefabricated so that there is minimal disruption to the live environment during installation. They are also built with an ultra-hygienic exterior surface that is simple to maintain and clean and reduces the spread of infectious diseases.

Trovex have been supplying Hygipod IPS units to Bouygues E&S hospital sites throughout Greater London for over three years such as at West Middlesex Hospital (WMUH), ITU ward.

The advantages of installing Trovex IPS Panels were noticed immediately by Bouygues E&S  site teams.

Robert Dashwood, General Manager at Bouygues E&S, said: Our engineers have found them to be much easier to install and the light weight of the panels reduces the risk of back and finger trap injuries. 

CLIENT BENEFITS:

  • Built to a high specification that will outlast the life of other products which commonly show signs of warping and delamination.
  • HBN-0010 part C compliant for sanitary assemblies used in healthcare facilities.
  • Simple to clean reducing the spread of diseases.
  • Delivered prefabricated making the unit quick and easy to install and causes less disruption in the live environment.

Jaysun Tuffin, Contract Manager at WMUH, Commented: We have had nothing but positive comments from all parties about the Trovex system – from the cleaning and maintenance perspective it makes life so much easier, and it looks really good, too. We will definitely be using this product in the future.

Hydrogen Powered Tower Lights

Partager sur

In agreement with Brian Pratt, Director of Capital Projects NHS, Bouygues Energies and Services (E&S) and the Royal Free London (RFL) are trialling hydrogen-powered tower lights at Barnet Hospital.  

RISK OF FUEL SPILLAGE REDUCED TO ZERO

ZERO CO2 SITE EMISSIONS

NOISE POLLUTION REDUCED TO ZERO

The CHallenge

Bouygues E&S and the Royal Free London are capitalising on this opportunity to highlight the benefits of using hydrogen-powered tower lights to reduce carbon emissions across the Healthcare sector.

Rather than running on small diesel generators, these hydrogen-powered lights offer a sustainable temporary lighting solution to areas where the Hospital would have struggled to light due to cabling infrastructure issues. This solution helps our client the RFL to achieve their pledge to create a greener NHS by reducing their fuel consumption and improving local air quality. In addition to supporting sustainable solutions, BYES are also committed to supporting the local community and their environment by eliminating the risk of fuel and noise pollution.

Solution

After trialling the Hydrogen-powered tower lights at Barnet Hospital, it is clear the environmental and social benefits outweigh the slight monthly increase to run them, which will eventually balance out as Hydrogen costs drop and diesel prices surge. Hydrogen powered lights are not only carbon free, very quiet and a cleaner source of energy, but also offer no risk of fuel spillage.

Operationally, the battery life and lighting sufficiency of the hydrogen-powered lights were excellent and rated 9/10 by the site team and 10/10 for overnight use battery life. The elimination of the risk of fuel spillage facilitates better resource-efficiency by reducing the amount of operational checks and the supplier service engineer only has to replace the hydrogen tank when required.

The built environment is one of the biggest contributors to the worlds CO2 emissions. Therefore, changing our behaviours and delivering sustainable solutions to diesel and petrol power is paramount in the fight against climate change. Bouygues E&S is aligned with the RFL in becoming early adopters of new innovation and technology to help the NHS achieve net zero by 2040.

CLIENT BENEFITS

  • Lighting in hard to reach areas
  • Reduce CO2 emissions on site by removing diesel generator
  • Reduction of noise pollution - Ideal for night work in residential areas and enclosed spaces
  • Safe to use in enclosed areas
  • Special low-impact lighting similar to lunar light

"Innovative solutions such as this from our PFI partners are much welcomed. Bouygues E&S understand fully the need to be a greener and cost effective NHS and the provision of this successful and innovative trial has demonstrated this. We look forward to expanding this trial further in the very near future."

Brian Pratt, Director of Capitol Projects NHS.

“This has been a great opportunity to assist in contributing to carbon offsetting in a healthcare setting and demonstrates closely working with our partners to help deliver this.”

Neil Woodburn, Metier Healthcare Director

“It’s exciting to see that through the Bouygues group, Bouygues E&S can propose solutions to help our clients work towards net zero carbon.”

Simon Hayman, Regional Director BYES.
