Fusion were tasked with providing electrical services to support a new-build project for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) Unit at Glenfield Hospital. This project focuses on the creation of a 15-bed mental health unit to support children and young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties within the local area.
The operation required taking services from the existing Bradgate Unit in the Glenfield Hospital and moving them to the new unit. This included telecommunications, security, power, door access links and CCTV.
Due to the sensitive area which we were working, it was key to ensure well managed phased planning to minimise disruption. To achieve this, Fusion developed different design options, allowing the client to choose which would achieve minimum disruption and maximum productivity for the facility.
As well as minimising the impact on the existing facility, we also had to work around essential COVID-19 restrictions. This meant working safely and efficiently to prevent delays to the project while ensuring that all staff, patients and contractors were not put at risk.
This project is still ongoing, but we expect to soon be able to deliver a fully operational facility that will accommodate CAMHS patients safely.
