New care home gets time-saving treatment from Armstrong

  • 27 Sep 2017

A new care home in Scotland has benefitted from a suspended grid system from Armstrong Ceiling Solutions.

Very quick to install, Armstrong’s Drywall Grid System (DGS) has been used on a building which forms part of West Dumbarton Council’s biggest ever capital investment programme.

3,500 square metres of the DGS was specified for the new, state-of-the-art £13 million New Dumbarton Care Home.

The DGS suspension system for plasterboard ceilings gives specifiers the option to use as a standalone, wall-to-wall, or in combination with Armstrong tiles and Axiom perimeter systems as a fully compatible solution.

It is available in three versions – standard for typical flat installations, faceted for curved and domed ceilings of any radius, and Shortspan for smaller areas such as

At Dumbarton Care Home the standard system has been used throughout the 23,000m2 brick and block building on the site of the former Crosslet House alongside other Armstrong systems for exposed ceilings to give the project a complete wall to wall ceiling solution.

The new care home comprises 84 residential bedrooms grouped in domestically-scaled seven-bedroom clusters. These are arranged in house groups to provide 56 ground-floor and 28 first-floor bedrooms.

It also incorporates steel-framed day care facilities for 50 people, along with associated access, parking and communal/courtyard landscaping.

The Armstrong systems were installed by specialist sub-contractor Brian Hendry Interiors, a member of Armstrong’s Green Omega network of sustainably-certified installers, for main contractor Morgan Sindall.

“I have worked with Armstrong over the past 18 years and found them to offer an excellent product, whilst at the same time offering good value for money with a very professional and reliable service,” Brian said.

“We receive a lot of support through our suppliers, however the Armstrong technical team are on call for anything more complex. With this project in mind, Martin [Dalby, Armstrong’s DGS specialist in the north] was in direct contact with our site supervisor and attended the site on numerous occasions throughout the duration of the project,” he added.
