    A new temperature controlled air handling unit, grilles, ductwork and smoke dampers were the main services replaced when the Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust came to SMS for their operating theatre refurbishment project.


Challenges Faced

The project presented several challenges:

  • Medical Conditions: Pressure stabilisers were installed to maintain a positve air pressure in the theatre.  This is a prerequisite for the theatre to ensure air is pushed out rather than potentially drawing in contaminated air. 
  • Project Management: Working around a live hospital. 
  • Plant Compound: Creating a new secure external plant compound consisting of concrete base, fencing and canopy.

Our Solution

SMS addressed the challenges with the following solutions:

  • Precise Planning: To ensure minimal noise, dust and general disruption. 
  • Deliveries Scheduled: To accommodate a live hospital environment.
  • Labour Arrangements:  Additional teams working out of hours.


SMS was appointed principal contractor for this challening project that required us to work in a live hospital environment.  The project showcased our planning expertise with hospital staff consulted to ensure strategic management of construction work with teams working out of hours where required .

With the dust now settling on the completion of the C-ALPS Hydrogen Laboratory research project I would now like to extend my thanks and gratitude for the success of a most challenging project. With some client changes and the impact of the various supply chain materials issues this has not phased anyone and the testament to you all is the conclusion of a great project! Your dedication and persistence has ensured that a great team ethos has been fostered in concluding the work.

Just a quick note to say thank you for a great job, the job looks great and a big part of that look is down to the hard work of your staff who performed to the highest standards. Looking forward to working with the guys again.

Savesta Construction Ltd was appointed as the Principal Contractor for the new £2.10m Dining Room and Science Classrooms extension project at Moseley Park School, Wolverhampton. From the reconciliation of their quotation and throughout the construction phase we found Staffordshire Mechanical Services Ltd to be engaged and proactive. Their representatives were always happy to engage with the design and progress meetings and provided valuable contributions where necessary. Their works were completed snag free, on time, within budget and without any accidents. Their final account was detailed and transparent resulting in it being promptly agreed. Given our experience, Savesta Construction Ltd

SMS' approach to projects is the best I have personally encountered. Their attention to detail and firm understanding of Mechanical & Electrical systems gives total confidence in project delivery and ultimately client satisfaction.

SMS Ltd were a new Company to us, via the Diocese. They were very professional in how they worked, and were very flexible in working around our school hours and holidays. We had new heating in our nursery, and they also helped out with other water / heating problems we had been incurring for numerous years. Of which, other companies had been unsuccessful. The staff and governors at the school were so pleased with their work that they have asked to include SMS Ltd in tender / quote process for additional work in and around school.
