PTSG is privileged to work on some of the UK’s most outstanding and iconic buildings. From historic castles and monuments to cutting-edge skyscrapers, we are proud to play our part in ensuring they are safe and protected, clean and operationally efficient.
Leeds General Infirmary is a large teaching hospital based in the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, and is part of the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
It is the designated major trauma centre for adults and children in West Yorkshire and one of the busiest in the UK, being rated in the top three in the country for providing the highest quality specialist care for patients with complex and often life-threatening multiple injuries. To the west of the main entrance on Thoresby Place is the School of Medicine, an 1893 Grade II listed building by W.H. Thorp in red brick, stone dressings and slate roofs in Perpendicular Revival style.
Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd recently delivered repairs to the lightning protection system in place at the hospital. Such systems are vital at hospitals and health care facilities as they rely on a wealth of sensitive electronic equipment that is vulnerable to damage from lightning surges.
PTSG has delivered specialist services at a large number of hospitals. In recent weeks, this has included the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, Islay Hospital on Scotland’s Western Isles and the hospitals with the East Sussex Healthcare Trust.
In the latter contract, engineers from PTSG Water Treatment Ltd carry out a range of water hygiene works and water sampling. They routinely help clients in providing tried and tested methods of sampling and testing, monitoring, cleaning, disinfection and refurbishment of water systems, but also in designing innovative engineered control measures to comply with relevant legal requirements.
The Group has also carried out specialist fixed wire electrical testing for a number of hospitals. Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Birmingham is the world’s largest single floor critical care unit. In such environments, access to all parts of the buildings needs to be planned meticulously to allow PTSG to complete the shutdown, testing and reboot of circuits without absolute zero impact upon the 24/7 critical operations.
