Bespoke Bilco NSHEV gives Healthy Prognosis for New Addenbrookes Hospital Car Park
Bilco UK - Bespoke Bilco NSHEV gives Healthy Prognosis for New Addenbrookes Hospital Car Park
A bespoke natural smoke and heat exhaust ventilator (NSHEV) manufactured by Bilco UK has been installed in a new nine-storey, multi-storey car park at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. The project, undertaken by VINCI Construction UK, has created 1,228 new parking spaces to meet growing demand at the renowned medical facility, as it expands to accommodate the relocation of Papworth Hospital. The Bilco NSHEV, when opened, allows for the rapid evacuation of smoke and heat in the event of fire and additional passive ventilation for the building.
“Quality design and construction were paramount for this project,” explains Craig Learoyd, Project Manager, VINCI Construction UK. “By using the very best construction materials we have created a secure, weatherproofed car park that is convenient and safe for staff and patients alike, and will remain so for decades to come.”
Twisted aluminium horizontal cladding, finished in yellow and silver inspired by surrounding rapeseed fields, maximises light and ventilation whilst shielding cars from intense sunlight. As it also serves The Rosie Maternity Hospital, the new car park will quite literally be a facility for a future generation.
“Bilco NSHEVs are well respected in the industry for their excellent construction, safety and ease of operation,” said James Fisher, Managing Director, Bilco UK. “Our extensive expertise allows us to create high quality bespoke products which exactly meet each client’s project brief, as in the case of Addenbrookes.”
Bilco has provided bespoke vents to a number of iconic buildings in recent years, including an unusually large motorized smoke vent at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury. Bilco also provides standard natural smoke and heat exhaust vents, as well as an exceptional range of horizontal access products.

Bilco Step Over Stair
Having already provided safe access to the roof with its outstanding range of roof access products, Bilco has now improved rooftop safety with the launch of its new Step Over Stair range. The new Step Over Stair provides a safe means of passage in the form of a short stairway over rooftop obstacles such as air conditioning or ventilation ductwork. The Step Over Stair is available in either mill finished aluminium or galvanised steel and is designed to precise specifications, according to each site’s requirements.
It is available as fixed (with penetrative fixing) or as a free standing stair. The fixed stair is bolted to the roof to provide a permanent safe route over long-term hazards in frequently accessed areas. The free standing stair has adjustable legs to negotiate height variations, and does not penetrate the roof with permanent fixings.
Managing Director James Fisher said, “Flat roofs are often home to potential trip hazards such as ducting and plant equipment, which can prevent safe, easy access to specific areas of the roof space. With more essential building services plant and telecoms equipment being situated on rooftops, our new Step Over Stair will be an additional safety precaution for service personnel who provide ongoing maintenance. ”
The Bilco Step Over Stair can be used in conjunction with the new Bilco Roof Mounted Walkway, which is designed and manufactured in accordance with the recommendations of BS5395: Part 3. Available with a variety of fixing options, including pedestal fixing, penetrative fixing, raised seam, or free standing, the Walkway is also designed to individual customers’ specifications and can be supplied with handrails and kick boards if required. The Walkway is manufactured from mill finished aluminium with non-slip GRP panels.
