Paget Health Systems
King Edward VII Memorial Hospital
Salas O’Brien delivered commissioning services for this $260 million hospital project in Bermuda. Our outstanding technical expertise and communication supported the success of the global team of contributors on this project.
As Bermuda’s second largest employer and its only hospital, Paget Health Systems’ King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) provides state of the art healthcare facilities for the 65,000 residents of the island nation as well as its many annual visitors. Its isolated location in the Atlantic Ocean demands self-sufficiency: KEMH provides a remarkably comprehensive range of services, and its facilities must grow to meet any increase in demand.
Hailed as one of the most important and most needed infrastructure projects in Bermuda—as well as being the largest construction project ever built on the island—KEMH’s new acute care building was developed by Paget Health Services to address a critical shortage of space for these services.
Our team commissioned all mechanical and lighting systems, including the complete HVAC system, boilers, chillers, exhaust, outside air ventilation systems, building automation controls systems, dehumidification, steam distribution, and solar and domestic water heating systems. Electrical systems commissioned included occupancy sensors, computer controlled lighting, emergency lighting, and switched controls.
The LEED Certified finished hospital houses acute care, ambulatory systems, operating rooms, outpatient rooms, and doctor consultation areas. The new and more efficient facilities have enabled improvements in service such as shorter hospital stays, which reduce overall health care costs.
