Balancing the creation of a positive environment for health & wellbeing with the needs of a medium secure mental health unit has been achieved simply yet safely and effectively. Rowan View, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust’s new £53m secure mental health & learning disability hospital, has been delivered on time despite the two-year building project happening during the pandemic. A key element of the internal environment – the ventilation – has been provided via Gilberts’ GPP4 perforated face supply, extract and transfer ventilation grilles. The Home Office-specification air supply and extract grilles ensure the right amount of fresh air, in the right places, for occupant needs throughout the state-of-the-art 123 bed facility in Maghull.

01253 766911 Luceco help Trafford General Hospital with further energy savings

Following the success of considerable energy savings as a result of recent lighting refurbishments utilising wireless lighting controls, Luceco was pleased to supply luminaires for further wards within Trafford General Hospital in Greater Manchester. Luceco Wireless Lighting Controls were specified by SI Sealy in association with the Estates and Facilities Department. The design was put forward for an architectural award due to the innovative use of the lighting controls overseeing lighting levels throughout the day and night. With the ward’s inhabitants primarily elderly and suffering dementia, the lit environment was programmed to reduce to low levels, but with luminaires never powering down completely. This ensured patients did not become disorientated, their welfare was of paramount importance to the lighting design. Over 250 Wireless Lighting Controlled luminaires were installed in TGH Ward 17/18 including LuxPanels, recessed and suspended Contour, Platinum and Element downlighters. Seamless runs of energy saving cost effective LED lighting can be created with Contour with the added benefit of 100,000 hours maintenance free operational life.
