Galvin Engineering worked with Woolacotts Consulting Engineers to determine and supply tapware solutions for various areas in the Westmead Hospital Infill Project (NSW).
Designed by Perumal Pedavoli Architects, the Westmead Hospital Infill Project was a series of five extensions added to the existing hospital during full operation. Galvin Engineering supplied tapware for the Intensive Care Unit, Women's Health and New Born Care, Brain Injury and Cancer Services sections.
Given the nature of care provided in these areas, infection control was a critical requirement; Galvin Engineering was engaged to provide reliable solutions for hands-free scrub environments, as well as the patient rooms and public wash areas.
Since the hospital was operational, the Quick Plumbing team worked with the staff and Thiess to plan and stage works while maintaining all essential services throughout and meeting project deadlines.
Westmead Hospital had previously tried numerous brands of electronic tapware in the past but had problems with their performance and reliability in the tough conditions of a hospital where many electrical machines operated 24/7.
Galvin Engineering worked with the nursing staff, plumbing contractor, hospital electricians and electronic experts over almost a year, ensuring the success of the electronic tapware, especially in Westmead's infection control areas.
Galvin Engineering specified and installed Flowmatic electronic tapware and spouts.
