Case study

Yeovil District Hospital – Modular Day Theatres

Modular Buildings are becoming increasingly important to the NHS as they offer scalable, high specification and cost-effective options with rapid construction. This trend is likely to continue.

All hospital buildings (modular or otherwise) are subject to the same standards for emergency lighting as detailed in BS5266.

Yeovil District Hospital’s Modular Day Theatres were created to serve day patients whilst reducing waiting times and helping the trust meet targets. The building provides state-of-the art theatre and treatment facilities.

With P4 emergency lighting already installed site-wide, it was a natural progression to expand the system into the new building.

What We Did

P4’s in-house design department designed the installation, ensuring light coverage to BS5266 standards.  We then provided over one hundred emergency lights and exit signs. These were installed by an electrical contractor into to all escape routes, and high-risk theatre areas. P4 returned to the site to commission the system verifying that all emergency lights had been installed and that the self-testing emergency lighting system was fully operational and able to communicate with Yeovil Hospital’s site-wide P4 system.


  • Remote monitoring of emergency lighting performance from the Trust’s estates department.
  • Cost saving compared to manual keyswitch emergency lighting testing.
  • Automated fault notifications – faults are specifically identified so can be promptly rectified improving safety and maintaining compliance. 
  • Testing certificates available by email via the Mweb system.
  • Energy efficient LED luminaires – energy cost saving and longer life with increased operational performance.
  • Customer peace of mind – confidence in compliance with BS5266.
  • Market leading after sales support.
