Sunderland firm lit up by hospital deal

Electricals business McNally and Thompson has completed a £200,000 installation at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary which it says is its most technical in its 40-year history.

The £200,000 specialist lighting systems were installed in the new Culture Centre at the hospital.

The company also installed over 14 miles of cabling in two new clinical blocks for the primary electrical services, security and fire alarm systems and communications network in the general office space, teaching rooms and lecture theatre.

Managing director Fred Hood said:  “Hopefully it will open up more opportunities to take on this level of highly technical work.”

McNally and Thompson supported Laing O’Rourke and Crown House on the double track project – a private finance initiative with Newcastle Hospitals  PFI  to create the clinical building and  office block and a direct contract with the trust to produce the Culture Centre.
