Johnson Controls wins healthcare BMS and chiller contract

09 January 2008

Johnson Controls has been awarded a three million pound building management system and chiller contract for two state-of-the-art hospitals in Pontefract and Wakefield.

Johnson Controls will participate in the refurbishment and update of the Pontefract General Infirmary and the building of a state-of-the-art General Hospital at the Pinderfields site in Wakefield, both of which are due for completion by 2010. Under the terms of the contract, Johnson Controls will provide a Metasys Extended Architecture Building Management System as the platform that controls all plant within the two hospitals. In addition, Johnson Controls will also supply six of its YORK chillers to both sites.

Johnson Controls secured the £3.2m contract due to its strong relationship with the developer Consort Health Care, having been involved in the project from the conceptual planning stage.

David St John-Clare, general manager for Johnson Controls’ Systems Branch, based in Manchester, said: “It has been a long and very personal journey in securing one of the largest privately funded initiatives in UK history, and my team and I are very proud to be involved in such a prestigious project, which will significantly benefit the local communities of Mid and West Yorkshire.”

The £311 million contract to develop both hospitals is a joint venture between Balfour Beatty Construction Plc and mechanical and electrical contractor Haden Young Construction Ltd, and The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
