Royal Liverpool University Hospital - HVAC Reference Case Study for ISOVER
The new Royal Liverpool University Hospital (UK) – a state-of-the-art, 13-storey healthcare complex – is due to be opened in summer 2018.
The facility will contain 646 single occupancy rooms, spread across 23 wards. Within the site, which is next to the current hospital building, there are 18 operating theatres, a 40 bed critical care unit, and 4.5 kilometres of corridors.
HVAC in hospitals
Over the last few years, the NHS has prioritised sustainable development and energy efficiency across its sites. With this in mind, developers are increasingly looking for alternative ways to conserve power and heat.
In larger buildings with extensive and sprawling conduits – such as the Royal Liverpool University Hospital – external duct insulation plays a key role in boosting energy efficiency.
