Greater Nottingham LIFT project

LIFT Partnership

Greater Nottingham LIFT is a Public Private Partnership. It was established in 2004 as part of a government initiative to supplement investment in primary health care and social care premises, many of which needed modernisation. The £70 million construction project involves the provision of health care centres and joint access centres for the delivery of primary health care and social services.

As part of the project, we completed the design, installation, testing and commissioning of the electrical services on five NHS LIFT developments in the Nottingham area. These included lighting, power, external lighting, CCTV and security system.

Cleadon Park PCC


Cleadon Park Primary Care Centre integrates local services such as GP practices, primary care teams, physiotherapy, social care accommodation and a library under one roof to serve the community of South Tyneside in Northern England.

Working alongside main contractor Inspiredspaces – a company set up by Carillion and its joint venture partners, we provided the mechanical and electrical installation for the project, meeting both time and budget targets.

The main services installed included a cost effective, energy efficient biomass boiler, underfloor heating, ventilation and comfort cooling systems, electrical sub-distribution, intelligent lighting and CCTV, fire and intruder alarm systems.

Brockfield House

South Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Brockfield House is a state-of-the-art £28 million Forensic Mental Health Hospital in Wickford, South Essex.  It includes 97 beds across five medium and two low secure wards, providing a safe environment for adults with a wide range of mental disabilities.  The complex also features a cafeteria, shop, gymnasium, sports hall and external sports and recreation facilities.

As part of the new build, we were selected to carry out the full design and installation of mechanical and electrical engineering services on the project.  This included lighting, power, external lighting, CCTV, security system, fire alarm, IT cabling, ventilation system, solar and low pressure hot water heating.

Blackpool South Shore Primary Care Centre

John Turner & Son

Blackpool South Shore Primary Care Centre is a purpose-built centre developed by NHS Blackpool and local GPs to serve the south localities of the seaside town. It provides a focus for improved health services within the local community as well as a modern, comfortable working environment for the town’s doctors and healthcare professionals.

We delivered all the mechanical and electrical works on the project.  This included low temperature hot water, variable temperature and constant temperature circuits, domestic hot and cold supply, rainwater harvest supply, air conditioning, ventilation, power, lighting, fire alarm and security including CCTV, systems controls and solar panelling.

Tiverton Hospital

Devon Primary Care Trust

Tiverton Hospital is a satellite unit for Plymouth University to facilitate learning opportunities for health care students.  It offers a variety of services including inpatient, maternity services, a minor injuries unit and a day case unit.  It also has a pharmacy, a community dental service, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, chiropody and audiology.

We handled the electrical installation, including the lighting, power, external lighting, CCTV, security system, IT cabling, ventilation system, solar and low pressure hot water heating to all areas of the hospital.  In addition, we also undertook the design and installation of the fire alarm system for the hospital.

Lytham St Annes Primary Care Centre


The Primary Care Centre is a three storey building in Lytham St Annes, with a pharmacy, café/newsagent, GP’s surgeries, a health education room, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and counselling rooms along with public areas.

We were engaged to install the mechanical and electrical systems on the project, which included lighting, high and low voltage distribution, data and CCTV cabling, building management system, medical gases piping, above ground drainage, under-floor, gas-fired, solar water and radiant ceiling panel heating, rainwater harvesting and supply and extract ventilation systems.
