The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow featuring CMS windows and doors

Curtain walling, doors and windows specified for Glasgow hospital

  • 15 Sep 2015

CMS Window Systems has completed the design and installation of energy efficient curtain walling, doors and windows for a new £27m Teaching & Learning Facility at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Designed by leading architects BMJ, the building features almost 400m2 of Metal Technology curtain walling, incorporating System 5-200 doors and 68 tilt and turn windows.

The building also features pod round windows designed and fabricated by CMS as part of the £350,000 door and window contract.

CMS uses energy efficient SGG COOL-LITE SKN 154 glass from GLASSOLUTIONS.

The glass offers optimum solar and thermal performance, reducing the risk of overheating and therefore the need for costly air conditioning during the warmer months.

Located on the site of Scotland’s largest hospital development, the teaching facility has been developed jointly by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and The University of Glasgow. It will provide a training facility for undergraduate doctors and postgraduate medical staff.

The centre will also be home to a medicine facility capable of undertaking whole genome DNA sequencing to identify optimal treatments for patients with chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular and inflammatory conditions.

The new centre will replace facilities at the Western Infirmary, Victoria Infirmary, Southern General and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children which will all close following the transfer of clinical services to the new site. 

Stephen Anderson, Director of the Aluminium Division at CMS said: “The Teaching and Learning Centre will provide an ideal environment in which the medical staff of tomorrow can learn the high quality skills they will need to provide superb care. 

This project – backed by massive Scottish Government investment – is set to deliver truly world class new hospital facilities for the people of Glasgow.”
