BRI Hospital Central Sterile Services Department

LED Lighting | Healthcare

The Challenge

To rewire and update the lighting systems within a central sterile services department (CSSD) in a major hospital, with minimum disruption to the cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing of reusable medical equipment.

Our Solution

We worked closely on the refurbishment of the CSSD with the central building contractor, CW Dukes and the lighting designer Connected Light, to rewire the existing installation with a steel conduit, which included a trunking containment system for new lighting and power circuits. To maintain the integrity and cleanliness of the area the new lights were all controlled via Philips PIR detectors.

The project was very challenging firstly because our electricians had to carry out the work whilst the departments continued to operate, because of this we broke the project into phases to suit the needs of the NHS. Where possible, as much preparation work was carried out during the week, allowing this central department to remain operational during normal working hours. Then at the weekends and later in the evening, our electricians were able to complete the final phases.

The second challenge was preserving the sterile environment. Since most of work was conducted within sterile areas, we adopted a managed working system to ensure no cross contamination.

“Electrio provide a first class service and a fully competent support service regarding the planning and co-ordination of the works. I would recommend them to anyone who is considering carrying out similar works. Hospital precincts contain critical service areas and I fully trusted Electrio to maintain these services throughout, they have a conscientious and professional approach and fully appreciate the need to maintain these critical services.”
