IMD certainty at Ascot



Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot as part of the Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust have recently upgraded a 3,500m2 vacant area, following the transfer away of the Trust’s mental health provision, to two floors of high quality office space.

The new area includes meeting rooms, open plan desk and hot desking area, staff changing and shower areas as well as a break-out space, an “al fresco “ dining space and a data centre.

Main contractors Logan Construction used Spark-rite Ltd of Yately for the electrical installation. Site manager, Steve Clark said, “We were looking for some quality alternative products for this project at an affordable price and the Centaur DMXT42 Trunking and Proteus XL Boards were proposed to us from the Installation Materials Division”.

The uPVC trunking from Centaur Manufacturing with its dual compartment profile provides generous wiring space for all power and data cabling and with their specialist fabrications department were able to provide any special accessories to accommodate any unusual corners and obstacles that are often encountered during refurbishments.


Proteus Industrial Switchgear also within IMD supplied the surge protected MCB distribution boards which are not only fully compliant to BS 61439-3 but also to the latest 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations.

“Both ranges did not disappoint” continued Steve, “The XL Boards offered fantastic wiring space which made them easy to install as was the Centaur trunking. Once installed it gave a very smart finish. Both factories delivered the products on time and were always quick to get out any extras orders we needed. Overall, an excellent experience.”


The project is part of a plan to revitalise Heatherwood Hospital and the Trust’s offering, which will also see a new hospital built on the site adjacent to the recent refurbishment in the near future.
