ÅF Group awarded installations contract for Halmstad Hospital
The ÅF Group has been appointed consulting engineer for the installations at the soon to be rebuilt county hospital in Halmstad on the west coast of Sweden. Three buildings will be demolished and replaced by a new entrance hall and reception area with a total footprint of some 16,000 square metres.
The ÅF Group's assignment runs until the end of June 2004 and involves the work of planning the installations for the premises' heating, cooling, sprinkler and air conditioning systems, as well as the new wing's medical gases.
The project is worth around SEK 5.5 million for the ÅF Group.
Exceptionally rigorous criteria with regard to hygiene mean that hospital installations are technically highly sophisticated systems. The ÅF Group, however, has many years of experience of project planning for installations of this kind in a hospital environment.
The ÅF Group's Installations Division has 425 employees and offers clients consulting advice and solutions in areas that include heating, ventilation and air conditioning, cooling, sanitation, control and regulation, electrical power, lighting and telecom installations. Most of the division's clients are to be found in industry and among commercial and public sector property management companies.
