Medical gases for Imperial West, London




Imperial West is Imperial College London’s major new campus located in White City, Hammersmith. The development will comprise of nine new buildings, which will provide multi-disciplinary research space for Imperial scientists and engineers.

Laing O’Rourke’s, which is handling the construction, will manufacture building modules offsite to reduce costs and minimise disruption to the busy surrounding area. Medical gases pipework will be installed inside the relevant modules in Laing O’ Rourke’s module manufacturing facility in Oldbury, Birmingham.

Medical Gases is supplying oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, vacuum, compressed air, and a spare gas line within 29 laboratories in Block D. The company has worked closely with Laing O’ Rourke’s design team to provide maximum control of the systems within each laboratory. This has been achieved using a bespoke control panel, which was designed and manufactured by Medical Gases, and a local gas detection and gas supply alarm system.
