Arc-Tech secures double contract award from NHS

Mechanical and electrical services provider Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd has been awarded a large-scale mechanical services contract with NHS Forth Valley.

The Glasgow-based firm is to undertake the upgrade of building services for both Stirling Community Hospital and Falkirk Community Hospital.

Arc-Tech will commence the contracts simultaneously in June 2018, each benefiting from an upgrade to ventilation, LTHW heating and water services to improve efficiency and controllability of existing resources.

Stirling Community Hospital is made up of several buildings of different age and is set to benefit from the development of a new Health and Care Village which is presently under construction. The entire estate is serviced by a network of pipe systems serviced by three duel fuel steam boilers. Arc-Tech has been tasked to install two new plant rooms within the estate and integrate them with the existing network.

Falkirk Community Hospital will benefit from a new replacement air handling system which will replace older systems. The new systems will improve air flow intake and therefore improve efficiency and support long-term performance.

John Gallacher, Arc-Tech managing director, said: “To be working with the NHS is a remarkable achievement for Arc-Tech and we are extremely proud to be involved on contracts that are ultimately there to improve hospital services for both staff and patients.

“We have recent experience in this sector having recently delivered a bespoke M&E package for the St Andrew’s Hospice so we are aware of the importance of working in a sensitive environment such as a hospital. Our team will ensure we operate to the highest standard expected of us and look forward to working with the NHS as the contract progresses.”
