With our knowledge of critical power, cooling solutions, infrastructure and power monitoring and our technical understanding of building standards for the data centre industry, we are best placed to deliver on refurbishment or new build projects, providing true turnkey options; on walls, floors, ceilings, sub-structure and super-structure. We use our expertise to provide the correct solutions with the optimum return on investment in mind at all times.
We have over 20 years of operation, gained a healthy respect from our peers, customers and suppliers of delivering engineering services to a broad spectrum of industries, institutions and authorities, including environmental engineering, offsite manufacture, rail, IT and facilities services.
Our focus is led by the drive to keep costs down and quality up, which are key requirements to our customers and why they engage with us early in the project concept allowing our design and technical employees to use innovative techniques that normal procurement routes exclude.
We understand that IT infrastructure is critical to every business, especially when it is your business and therefore design and build systems, that have dual redundancies, as well as investing heavily in temporary and mobile equipment.
Finally, we believe that to continue to grow the relationship with our customers, it should always be with integrity, being part of their team, and at the heart of their business.
The plan involved rolling out a series of hospitals in very short order to give specialist, critical care to those who needed it.
FEL Group were approached by one of our larger partners to assist in the construction of one of the NHS Nightingale Centres in Harrogate.
Provided labour for install Medical Gas installation Hospital Beds
NG Bailey (NHS Nightingale, Yorkshire & Humber)
Due to the emerging help needed to support the Government during a national crisis, NG Bailey where appointed by BAM Construction to provide the full M&E services including a comprehensive piped medical gas installation
At short notice, FEL Group mobilised 22 engineers were deployed to work back-to-back shifts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 3 weeks.
NHS managers worked alongside military planners and engineers to open a total of 7 temporary hospitals to cope with the Covid-19 Pandemic. These field hospitals aimed to provide around 3000 additional beds with specialist equipment, specifically to treat patients who contracted Covid-19 and had complex medical needs.
Our engineers turned their skills from installing refrigeration systems to medical gas lines. This project entailed fitting gas lines from storage tanks to bedside equipment.
The NHS Nightingale hospital is now fully equipped to provide critical care to patients from across Yorkshire and the Humber who have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and are already in-patients in other hospitals within the region.
The NHS Nightingale Hospital’s aim is to support critical care for the most complex patients within their own hospitals whilst caring for other, less complex cases in the new facility.
In this case timescales and budget were mission critical to ensure additional bed capacity was available if needed. The facility can now provide up to 500 additional critical care beds and has been available since the 21st April 2020.
FEL Group understood the express requirements from this project and provided a seamless shift service in order to complete the project on time and within the planned budget and timeframe.
