Installation and Design


Site Surveys

Our installation work starts before the engineers come to the site. When we receive a request to quote MGPS work, we will visit the site to ascertain what is needed and if any existing drawings are accurate, as well as compliance to current standards (HTM02-01). On-site surveys are essential where new pipe work is required, and our engineers will take measurements to include existing and proposed additional gas flow usage so that the correct pipe sizes are used in the job. Isometric drawings and plan drawings are used to extrapolate all possible components of the installation for accurate material planning and pricing. In addition, we take into account any proposed future expansion, in order to save client costs going forward and to future proof the MGPS.

Design Services

Before a project begins our experienced Sales Support team offers expert medical gas design services, to assist your design professional with the specialised design work of the medical gas pipeline system. With new build hospitals and refurbishments, we are involved in the early planning stages, offering advice on the design of a new MGPS including where necessary field surveys to determine the integrity of existing systems. Our installers work in close proximity to clinical staff and patients, where ward upgrades for example, mean neighbouring wards are being maintained. We are adept at handling issues with designs that require updating and provide as fitted drawings with each new installation. This service helps ensure hospital drawings are current and prevents the use of outdated drawings in future developments or upgrades.

Installing MGPS and Project Management

Our knowledge is derived from many years of experience in MGPS. Should you require a project team to manage an installation, or just work cost effectively with a contractor, our installation team are nationally renowned to provide systems of the highest standard. Our Project Manager will produce the necessary Scope of Works and Risk Assessments for approval by the hospital AP (MGPS) or Project Manager, and monitor the progress of the project at all times to ensure projects are delivered safely, on budget and on time.

Testing and Commissioning

All medical gas pipeline systems installations are tested by BeaconMedaes prior to requesting the Hospital Pharmacist or other appointed Quality Control authority to undergo a final check and purity test to HTM 02-01 standard. Our procedures for this follow strict guidelines to ensure that the system is Patient ready. The hospital AP will then take responsibility for the management of the system. The AP knows that BeaconMedaes has provided the best-in-class products supported by high-level installers, maintainers and support staff and backed by a quality assured guarantee.
