GC Walk-through Gas Kiosk

GC Walk-through Gas Kiosk


The Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is carrying out a 5-year programme of energy upgrading. This work includes the installation of a new 13MWh, 7bar gas supply, new pressure regulators and meter rig together with a new buried meter outlet system. The contractor for these works was GBH Utilities Ltd of Rotherham, a GIRS & Gasafe contractor working directly for the NHS Trust. The kiosk was delivered in July 2014. The location of the rig meant that a long-reach lorry mounted crane was utilised to position the kiosk as shown below. A high degree of collaboration between the two companies was required to ensure the adequacy of the design and this paid off in the trouble free installation which was completed within an hour!



The installation time was a bonus: we worked closely with MCL to develop the design and and ensure conformance with IGE/ GM/ 8 requirements. Basically, we specified our requirements and MCL did the rest! We had something like a two hour window for the kiosk installation due to site circumstances and associated work activities so, to coin a phrase,  'just- in- time' delivery was essential for the success of the job. I'm pleased to say that this was achieved without difficulty and because of the close collaboration and detailed planning, the installation was a matter of routine!
