JCA announces sponsorship of Pro Sports Events  

We are delighted to announce a new sponsorship of Pro Sports Events, a cycling event company. This is an exciting opportunity to support a growing local business, which is at the heart of our approach to corporate social responsibility.  

At JCA, we are committed to developing sustainable communities. Our vision is to contribute towards vibrant, caring and mixed communities, tackling issues associated with the local environment, employment, training, transport and the instigation of local strategic partnerships. 

Pro Sports Events is a unique cycling event company with over 10 years of experience in delivering cycling events across the globe, specialising in bespoke cycling experiences for all abilities, both in the UK and abroad. 

Ian Jackson, Chairman at JCA, said: “We’re excited to partner with Pro Sports Events – a team of experienced and enthusiastic cyclists, delivering bespoke cycling adventures. Their ethos strongly resonates with our own; at JCA we recognise the value of health and wellbeing, and the need to balance work and personal life. Finding an outdoor activity, not necessarily cycling, is a great way to get away from everyday pressures and maintain positive mental health.” 

Ian Holmes at Pro Sports Events, said: “The team at Pro Sports are absolutely delighted to partner with JCA for this year’s events. This sponsorship has already brought a fantastic new look to the team, and we look forward to a busy year of bespoke adventures.”

New ICU facility at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

The JCA design team is part of the professional team assigned to designing and creating the new critical care (ICU) facility at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

JCA worked extensively and thoroughly engaged with the management team at the Trust, together with the clinicians and design team, with a view to deliver a new ‘class leading’ expanded adult (ICU) intensive care unit.

This is a major and exciting development within the hospital that offers patients, patient families and clinicians new state-of-the-art facilities for a critical care environment.

These benefits include but are not limited to the following:

  • Maximising daylight for the patients with extensive views of the city using full height thermal comfort glazing
  • Large bed spaces with carefully considered ceiling mounted articulated arms and monitoring facilities
  • Glass will replace curtains to improve noise reduction and privacy
  • Improved relative facilities
  • Upgraded burns unit environmental systems
  • Centralised 24 hours critical care engineering systems offering flexible, maintainable systems with minimal maintenance impact in patient areas

JCA overcame complex engineering challenges to design a solution to facilitate upgraded central engineering upgrades whilst ensuring there is no impact to the usual day to day running of the hospital during the construction works and to provide a phased handover and sectional completion of areas. The engineering specified throughout the scheme uses modern, energy efficient and dynamic controlled environmental and lighting management systems.

David Butcher, Director of Estates and Facilities at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Trust, said: “This project is a complex major scheme in a central London hospital that needed engineering design capability of the highest standard with a team capable of working closely with clinicians to provide a design that can be built in a properly planned and methodical manner with minimal impact to the usual day to day running of the hospital.”

Phase 1 of the project is completed, handed over to the client and currently in use.

JCA Engineering secures a maintenance contract with Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

JCA Engineering has secured a five-year maintenance contract to deliver hard FM services to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Following a competitive tender process, Chelsea & Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust awarded the contract to JCA Engineering who will provide M&E maintenance across the estate encompassing the main site at Fulham Road, as well as several smaller clinics.

Service provision at the site include planned preventive, reactive and building maintenance, external areas maintenance, energy and utility maintenance, fire safety systems and procedures, the estate’s emergency and contingency planning, and statutory testing.

JCA Engineering has previously delivered several projects for the hospital, the most recent being the design and construction of an HVAC infrastructure upgrade to cater for a new NICU and ICU expansion project.

One of JCA’s founding principles is to be able to manage all aspects of a client asset estate. This holistic approach allows JCA to deliver through their own teams, from design to construction to maintenance.

JCA works extensively within the healthcare sector and has worked on many complex and challenging healthcare projects. Although JCA works closely within the guidelines set out within the numerous hospital and healthcare standards, it has created its own healthcare charter, JCARE, which unifies JCA’s design, project and maintenance standards. JCARE promotes healthy, safe, visionary working policies in hospitals and healthcare organisations.

Ian Jackson, Chairman at JCA, said: “The recent appointment strengthens JCA’s reputation and position on the market as a reliable and trusted engineering and maintenance services supplier. We see this new contract as an excellent opportunity to develop a strong partnership between JCA and the Trust, focused on delivering exemplary services.

JCA Engineering will work together with Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to enhance the user experience and deliver service that goes beyond performance expectations. The contract delivery will be built around achieving excellence in customer service and ensuring the safety of staff, patients and visitors.
