Medical Air Technology
Medical Air Technology (MAT) designs, manufactures and installs bespoke critical ventilation systems and turnkey project solutions. We are passionately committed to improving patient protection and end-user safety in demanding clinical, research and drug production arenas.
We can bring our expertise to new build or refurbishment projects. We have extensive experience of working in live environments and understand the challenges around delivering a project within a live, operational scenario. Careful planning and considerate working ensures there is as little disruption as possible to staff and patients.
Healthcare and Life Science Arenas Served
Healthcare Critical Ventilation
We provide specialist critical ventilation solutions for hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Critical ventilation is key in ensuring infection prevention and control, making surgery safer for patients.
Our hero product, the ECO-flow™ ultraclean ventilation (UCV) canopy, turns a conventional operating theatre into a UCV theatre, suitable for orthopaedic procedures. This allows hospitals to increase the range of procedures they are able to offer. It can be fitted in a new theatre or as an upgrade or retrofit.
We also provide specialist ventilation for critical care and sterile services departments.
Life Sciences Specialist Ventilation
Our critical ventilation systems are used in aseptic suites and cleanrooms to create the conditions needed to maintain positive pressure and ensure product protection. They are also used in containment laboratories to maintain negative air pressure to prevent the escape of hazardous pathogens.
Design and Project Management You Can Trust
When you choose MAT as your specialist partner, you can be sure that you will be working with some of the best engineers, designers and project managers in the business. We can project manage the entire process or work with the incumbent architect and design consultant.
Vendor-Neutral and Independent
We manage cost, risk, programme and compliance, providing all the benefits that come from working with a specialist contractor. Although we can advise on suppliers, we are completely vendor-neutral and independent, and happy to accommodate a client’s preferred supply chain, if required.
We provide an interface between all stakeholders so that each department’s input is taken into account. This minimises the chance of stoppages and delays and ensures that everyone is in agreement around the choice of specialist equipment, room design, and fixtures and fittings.
We are proud to have worked with some of the UK’s leading healthcare and research facilities. Details of our many projects can be found on our News Hub, which is updated regularly.
“MAT secured a contract to refurbish Theatres 3 and 4 and replace both air plants at Fairfield General Hospital by competitive tendering, and a very challenging 8-week contract period was set. The scheme was completed on time, within the agreed tender sum and to a very high standard of work. The theatre management team and the consultant surgeons are delighted with the final product. I look forward to working with MAT and their supply chain subcontractors when the next opportunity arises, and I have no hesitation in recommending MAT to others.”
David Shepherd: Principal Project Manager, Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
“MAT is large enough to cope with any issues but small enough to care, and this was evident throughout. It was a pleasure to work with MAT and the team that was assembled for the project at LSHTM, and we hope to have the opportunity to work together again.”
