Products specified for new decant ward at Hillingdon Hospital
Modular buildings are increasingly being used by healthcare trusts to provide facilities in shorter time scales.
And, with the lack of ward and bed space continuing to hamper the NHS's ability to meet Government targets, modular buildings, with their quick turnaround time, offer the perfect solution.
Increasingly, todays modular ward acommodation can be bespoke built to the highest user requirements, and Vistamatic and BetweenGlassBlinds are a key partner for the leading modular build providers.
An example of this is a recent project for a 28-bed decant ward for the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Trust. Working with principal contractor, MTX Contracts, and door supplier, Bridgman IBC; Vistamatic provided 20 bespoke 395x795 non-fire vision panels, with lever-handle operation.
BetweenGlassBlinds was also specified for the build and BGB supplied the project with 33 integral blind sets.
For nine of the installations, FD60 requirements were met; and an additional 24 non-fire rated units were supplied.
The blinds were required to be tilt only.
Jim Greensmith, senior manager at Bridgman IBC, said: “The pressure was on to perform and supply quickly and efficiently, and with Vistamatic’s help, Bridgman IBC was able to improve lead in periods and supply the project in full to assist the Hillingdon team's fight against COVID-19.”
