Case Study: Healthcare

MCE Scotland - Healthcare

MCE Scotland have worked extensively with NHS Scotland to provide BMS solutions to Hospitals, Clinics and Health Centres throughout Scotland. In many instances MCE were required to decommission existing outdated Controls equipment and install new Open protocol Bacnet systems without causing disruption to patients and staff. By liaising with Estates Engineers MCE were able to handover all of these contracts with minimal fuss and to the client's satisfaction.

Within these NHS sites we have installed various Bacnet systems including Distech, Tridium, Cylon and Isma which are then communicating with various standard items of plant from Boilers, Air Handling Units and Plate Heat Exchangers to more Close Control systems within Laboratories and Clean Rooms.

MCE were able to provide total environmental control with heating, cooling and humidification interfaced with a remote surgeons panel. There is also the ability to interrogate the site via the various network keypads and display panel situated on the front of the Control Panels and at Nurses' stations within the ward areas.

As well as the ability for local interrogation via the network keypads, all items of plant interfacing with the BMS Controls System are now interfaced to the Estates Team Bacnet Operated Workstations (BOWS) via the Hospital's Ethernet.

MCE have also set-up alarms to go to the On-Call Engineers' mobile phones so that they have an early warning system in place for any critical items of plant.
