SAS MODULAR SOLUTIONS Wins At Prestigious Building Better Healthcare 2009 Awards

SAS Modular Solutions, part of SAS International, won the Award for ‘Best Exterior Product’ at the recent 2009 Building Better Healthcare Awards, which recognise best practice in healthcare design and facilities management. It was noted that “SAS Modular Solutions makes an innovative contribution to the therapeutic quality and efficiency of the exterior structure of healthcare facilities.”

SAS Modular Solutions offer prefabricated, mechanical and electrical (M&E) modules that can bridge the gap between M&E and construction disciplines. This improves on-site project management and health and safety issues whilst reducing labour force scheduling.

Uniquely the SAS Modular Solutions M&E units can be specified with walls, meeting acoustic (dB) and fire rating demands. These walled units also offer significant reductions in construction programme, logistics and waste, improving the delivery and installation of M&E services and the fit-out phase of a building.

Healthcare buildings are some of the most demanding for the provision of M&E services and systems. Off-site construction allows for complex areas of installation to be produced in a modular format in controlled factory conditions.

Having successfully featured in the biggest PFI Healthcare project in Europe, SAS Modular Solutions have been shown to offer superior use of space and flexibility in configuration. Importantly, a faster return on investment through economies of scale and fixed costs can also be achieved.

Andrew Jackson, Marketing Director at SAS International, commented: “SAS Modular Solutions perfectly combine SAS International’s proven expertise in the provision of heating, cooling and integrated service module solutions, and its world-class manufacturing and design capabilities for pre-fabrication.”

“Each unit from SAS Modular Solutions can be constructed individually from plan according to where the unit will be sited, pre-fitted with the requisite service components, and is separately tested in the factory to ensure rigorous quality control.”

“We are delighted that our innovative approach and the benefits of using the SAS Modular Solutions route in this sector have been recognised by the Judges.”

Established in 1998 to celebrate the people, products and projects that have excelled in improving the healthcare environment over the previous year, with a record 156 entries the 2009 BBH Awards were the biggest to date.

Judging the Awards was a panel of the industry's most-respected experts who included Susan Francis, special advisor for health at the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE); Beatrice Fraenkel, chairman of Merseycare NHS Trust and director of Sandown Property Co (Liverpool) Ltd; and Kevin Oxley, director of operations at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust and national chairman of the Health Estates and Facilities Management Association (HefmA).
