Mealey Electrical Ltd. were commissioned to carry out the refurbishment of Ward 34 at Glenfield Hospital. Mealey Electrical were employed in a sub-contractor capacity.

The mandate for the job consisted of removing the existing bedhead trunking in 6 bays and installing new bedhead trunking in 7 bay locations.

The existing small power circuits were isolated (LOTO) and reconfigured when the new trunking was installed. New inspection lights were also installed to each bed location. The existing main lighting above the beds remains in place but the switching needed to be moved into the new bedhead trunking. This was accomplished by discussing the requirements with the manufacturers of the trunking system and a switch was provided within the trunking at various locations.

The contract was carried out over a very short period of time, with a deadline to adhere to, which we were able to complete to the client’s satisfaction. Testing and commissioning were carried out during the installation and at the final stages.
