Royal Oldham Hospital – Gas and Water Diversion

ECK were appointed to divert external gas and water mains to allow for construction of new hospital building.

Works included running a new 180mm barrier pipe diversion main for the water supply which was pressure tested and chlorinated prior to a live connection.

The works on the gas involved running a new 125mm diversion gas main, which was connected while the gas pipework remained live to ensure hospital operations was not effected.
