East Kent University Hospitals Foundation Trust
Retrofitting buildings to net zero with NHS England
As a demonstration project, Square Gain worked with East Kent University Hospitals Foundation Trust to provide solutions to the decarbonisation of their ‘most challenging’ building, the aptly named 1937 Building, which had changed very little since its original construction.
Working closely with 2Gether Support Solutions, who provide facilities services at the hospital, we assessed the extent of heat loss and air leakage for individual rooms, identifying problem areas that could be focused on and a ‘one size fits all’ approach was avoided. The aim was to save the Hospital Trust money and to decarbonise in the most cost-effective way, whilst ensuring that works allowed the hospital’s clinical services to remain fully operational.
