The winning project was the refurbishment of the Neo-Natal Unit roof at Hammersmith Hospital.
The project faced a number of challenges due to the nature of the building. The roof top plant – which covered almost the entire roof space – services the internal climate, the MRI scanner and the delicate medical equipment.
It was essential that the equipment remained in full working order throughout the project, so great consideration was taken. For example, the MRI Coolant Quench Pipe (CQP) prevents the highly sensitive MRI scanner from overheating.
In addition, M&J specified IKO SafeStick PrevENt flame free application system combined with IKO Polimar cold liquid applied system where complex detailing was required.
Richard James, M&J Managing Surveyor said: IKO is a key supply chain partner for us. We’ve worked closely with them on a number of projects throughout the UK and have a great relationship with the team.
The combined expertise of M&J and IKO meant that the project was successfully completed with minimal disruption to the hospital and on budget, giving the client a roof they could rely on for years to come.
