The Delta hospital, located on one of the busiest intersections of Brussels, houses the combined hospital services of Edith Cavell Hospital and Park Leopold over eight floors and an area of 100,000 m². ENGIE’s three service entities worked together on building this new, ultramodern healthcare complex.
Ultramodern hospital complex
This state-of-the-art hospital complex has all the latest medical technology: medical imaging, nuclear medicine, dialysis, accident & emergency department etc. In addition, its 34 operating theatres means its surgery department is one of the biggest in Brussels. The Delta complex is also a recovery, rest and health resort, with facilities such as a day nursery, a canteen, and various shops.
To respond to the requirement to limit energy consumption on the complex wherever possible, ENGIE drew on its in-house expertise in its various branches: ENGIE Cofely, ENGIE Axima and ENGIE Fabricom. Together, they cam up with a wealth of intelligent and sustainable energy solutions. The main concerns were safety, ensuring health experts have access to all information, made-to-measure technical installations, comfort for improved patient treatment, and energy efficiency.
ENGIE Fabricom’s role
ENGIE Fabricom was responsible for installing the electrical systems. All these systems were separated in terms of power supply, electrical circuits, cooling, access control etc., so that the hospital would never be threatened by a problem in one of these parts. Permanent monitoring means technical teams can intervene rapidly if necessary. All the lighting in the building is supplied by LEDs.
ENGIE Cofely built a large data centre, from which all the technical equipment can be controlled. It allows energy management to be monitored better, and gives full control over the temperature, lighting, IT network and follow-up of patients until they reach surgery.
ENGIE Axima executed the HVAC installation, which involved installing gas condensing boilers, heat pumps, high-efficiency cooling systems, free chilling, air handling units and hot-water solar panels in the hospital.
The Delta hospital once again reflects ENGIE’s extensive expertise in healthcare complexes.
