EQUANS takes part in the installation of electrical and HVAC equipment for the largest hospital in Wallonia, the Grand Hôpital de Charleroi (GHdC): 156,000 m², 23 operating rooms, 32 intensive care units, 986 beds.
The EQUANS teams are concentrating on the buildings called “hotfloor” and “Factory” which will house the most critical medical activities (such as surgery rooms and intensive care units) where every detail is important.
The entire project is carried out within the framework of a BIM (Building Information Modelling) procedure.
State-of-the-art heating and air conditioning systems are installed
- Chillers 10 MW
- Ventilation is provided by around a hundred air handling units, installed in the technical rooms of the building, for a total flow of 1,200,000 m³/hour.
Complete electrical solutions
We are working on the complete electrical solutions for the building: 1,300 km of structured copper cabling,12 km of fibre, 2,325 badge readers for access control, 6,300 nurse call devices, nearly 10,400 fire detectors and 31,500 kVA standby generator sets to guarantee continuity of services in all circumstances. Lighting will be controlled via the KNX protocol, which will offer great flexibility and the possibility of achieving significant energy savings, etc.
