The Broadmoor Hospital redevelopment team won a Sustainable Hospital Award at the 2016 Health Business Awards.
Announcing this year’s winner The One Show’s GP, Dr. Sarah Jarvis, told the audience: “This award recognises the contribution the Broadmoor Hospital redevelopment project has made towards sustainability by reducing the impact of healthcare facilities on the environment and the smarter use of energy”
Keith Thomas, technical project manager, was at the event to accept the award. He said: “We incorporated a number of environmental elements from the outset to ensure the delivery of greener buildings. These included an extensive enabling works programme to create safe habitats for displaced wildlife, the recycling of over 4,200 tonnes of concrete from our decommissioned hospital buildings and the installation of a combined heat and power unit to make future energy consumption much more efficient.
“As you can see, sustainability has played an important role in this project, so we’re delighted that our work has been recognised by the judges.”
This is the third award the team has won in as many years, including the prestigious Green Apple Award received in 2013, and the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) award, collected in 2015.
