Another day done and another large-scale project completed here at Orion, this time for a new £335 million state-of-the-art hospital - the Royal Liverpool Hospital.
The original Royal Liverpool Hospital was built in 1978 and as of today has seen several major advances in healthcare.
The new £335 million state-of-the-art building stands 200ft tall and was designed specifically to meet future healthcare needs, with patient welfare and the importance of remaining ahead of technological advances in mind. This recent focus on digital technology has been acknowledged with the hospital trust being awarded 'Digital Exemplar' status.
"The new Royal will enable us to deliver state of the art healthcare in the best surroundings in the world. It will also help us meet the aspirations of our staff to provide the kind of service that we would want to see for our own families...We are planning to move by Summer 2018 and in order to prepare for the move, our redevelopment team have been working with over 5000 staff to coordinate the biggest move of our history...The ultimate aim is to create a world leading hub for research and development in the city, creating thousands of jobs in the process." Aidan Kehoe (Chief Executive at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals)
We specially designed a range of bespoke rack server and colocation server cabinets (nearly 100 in total) to house and secure all the high-end computer servers required to manage the large quantity of highly-sensitive data that will be hosted in the server rooms at the hospital.
We completed our part in the Royal Liverpool project early 2017 with a view to beginning our next large-scale NHS hospital project in Dumfries shortly after.
