The Hospital Club, Covent Garden

Wednesday, 15 February 2017 11:29

 

This building was originally opened in 1749 as the British Lying-In hospital and remained one of London’s principle maternity facilities until 1913. It became a military hospital during the First World War prior to being sold for £15,000 in 1919 to St Pauls Hospital. It remained a medical centre until 1992 when the services were transferred to the Middlesex Hospital.

 

The building set idle and fell into disrepair for over a decade until in 2004 after a joint collaboration between Dave Stewart from the musical group The Eurythmics & Paul Allen co founder of Microsoft re-launched it as a hub of creativity – full of people, ideas, music and life. The Hospital Club was born.

The building includes bars, restaurants, meeting rooms and a full TV studio where many main stream TV shows are filmed.

In 2014 and due to its success, the club decided to convert one of the floors that was their admin centre into a 16 room hotel. The design was to create a variety size of rooms and two suites. However with the noise being created from the high energy produced on the areas below, the floor had to be sound proofed to create the right ambience for a hotel. Penetrating this floor to allow for gravity fixtures was not possible, so the public health designer Cudd Bently proposed a vacuum drainage system that would allow the drainage to be lifted to high level and then routed to a pre-built sound protected riser.

 

The vacuum drainage system caters for all 15 rooms draining the toilets, wash basins and baths. Evac’s range of interface units allows for shower waste collection in both the standard and disabled rooms.The Evac vacuum system does not impact on the aesthetics of the room and blends with the interior designers vision.

Waitrose Recycle Vacuum

Monday, 23 May 2016 10:22

 

The flexibility of the Evac drainage system, particularly in a supermarket allows a store owner to refurbish the sales floor without having to rely on any existing underground drainage or dig the floor to create new. This is then a cheaper and quicker way for store refurbishments to be completed.

 

When the Waitrose store at Littlehampton closed last year, all of the equipment was passed around the estate and re-used in other shops around the country. As this store had been fitted with the Evac vacuum system, there was an amount of equipment too that could be re-used.

 

Following the closure, Waitrose upgraded their store at Mountsorrel where they were able to re-cycle the vacuum generation plant that had been used on the previous project.

 

Just another example of the flexibility and cost saving benefits of the Evac Vacuum Drainage System.
