Maggies Cancer Centre based at The Christie Hospital in South Manchester was designed by world renowned architect Sir Norman Foster. It will provide advice and support to people with cancer, as well as their friends and families. HE Simm worked collaboratively with Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver the full MEP package to the project. The project consists of a small centralised plant room, the heating to the scheme is provided via a underfloor heating system and radiators. The ventilation system is provided to the toilets and kitchen, both systems are fully controlled via the BMS, the BMS also controls the window actuators which are linked to a time clock and weather sensor. The lighting is a bespoke design which is linked back to a centralised control system in the plant room which can be controlled via wall mounted scene select panel. There are also fire alarms, security and CCTV systems provided throughout the building.
HE Simm employed both mechanical and electrical apprentices throughout the duration of the project, sourcing over 90% of the workforce from the local area.
