Static awarded Grange University Hospital contract

Static Systems Group has been awarded the contract to supply and install nurse call systems and bedhead services trunking at the new £350 million Grange University Hospital in South Wales, designed by architects, BDP.

When complete, the hospital will include a 24-hour acute Assessment Unit and Emergency Department, providing complex specialist and critical care treatment for over 600,000 people in south-east Wales.

 

Static Systems was awarded the contract by Crown House Technologies on behalf of main contractor, Laing O’Rourke. Its Fusion IP Ultima nurse call system and Ventura bedhead services trunking will be installed throughout the 471-bed hospital, with the former fully integrated into the Trust’s LAN infrastructure, ‘delivering cost savings by sharing the infrastructure wiring and equipment, and enabling the client to manage nurse call alongside all its other shared IP services’. Ultima will provide ‘full endto-end IP to the bed’, and allow interfacing and connectivity to a third-party VoIP telephone system. 

With offsite construction fully embraced on this project, Static Systems has worked closely with Laing O’Rourke to enable nurse call to be fully installed into the bathroom pods being built. Each pod’s nurse call is commissioned offsite, enabling it to be easily connected into the main system as part of the final installation process. The company will also manufacture and assemble all the bedhead trunking off site at its Staffordshire manufacturing facility. In both instances, it says adopting this approach means product quality can be carefully controlled, products are fully populated ready for installation, and delivery and installation are smoother.
