Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust provides healthcare services in South West London and Surrey across its two hospital sites at Epsom Hospital and St Helier Hospital. The Trust applied for funds from MEEF and LEEF to support them with the regeneration of the hospital when it was on the brink of closure due to the condition of the hospital facilities.

The EPC comprises a package of energy conservation measures including; LED lighting, HVAC systems, controls and central plant. It also includes the installation of an 800kWe CHP plant and 3 x 2.2MWth gas boilers to replace existing steam boilers along with the associated pipework insulation, motor replacements and controls.

Breathe were selected as the EPC contractor through the Greater London Authority (“GLA”) RE:FIT programme. The Project matched recycled LEEF funds with MEEF to provide a competitive finance option for the Trust.
