EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR PRE-QUALIFICATION OF RETROFITTING WORKS FOR THE POGSON HOSPITAL

November 22, 20122157Views

The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) in collaboration
with the Ministry of Health & Social Services, St. Kitts & Nevis hereby
announces a request for Expression of Interest (EOI) to pre-qualify
construction firms and joint ventures for retrofitting works on the Pogson Medical
Centre. 

These works form part of the Smart Health Care Facilities Project
funded by the United Kingdom Department of International Development (DFID) to
incorporate climate smart and resilience standards in health care facilities in
the Caribbean.  One major output of the
project is the creation of a model climate smart health care facility, at the Pogson
Medical Centre.  This model is intended
to stand as examples for other countries and facilities, and will also allow
for detailed cost-benefit analysis to be done. 

Particular attention will be paid to water and electrical systems,
improvements to fire safety and egress, improved air quality, and improvements
to the existing security system. Examples of the retrofitting works include the
installation of a photovoltaic (PV) system, energy efficient light bulbs and
fixtures, upgrade to the existing sewerage treatment system and emergency
power, water-saving faucets and rain-water capture devices.
