Scope of Works

Enerveo has successfully completed isolation and diversion of the main steam line, which has enabled safe demolition works of the current existing buildings to get underway. The Enerveo project team, alongside our supply chain partner TruArc, skilfully undertook the works during a planned weekend shutdown that was completed on time and with no loss of service or disruption to the hospital or patients.

Added Value

Demolition work began last year to kick off Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust's £450m Hospitals of the Future project, to create new hospitals to deliver a range of adult health services and a new home for Leeds Children's Hospital by 2025.

Demolishing large sections of a working hospital, in the middle of a busy city centre, has taken a great deal of careful planning and preparation. Before the client could begin moving equipment onto the site, Enerveo had to start work on decommissioning and replacing the services in tunnels that run beneath the site. These tunnels, which contain essential services such as power cables and steam tubes, are more than 100 years old and they are so extensive that someone can walk underground right across the LGI site, and all the way to Millennium Square.
