Wrightstyle is to design, supply and install advanced glazing systems for a flagship hospital in south-east Wales.
The £350 million Grange University Hospital, in Llanfrechfa, near Cwmbran, is one of the largest NHS projects ever seen in Wales.
Construction on the 55,000 square metre facility started in 2017 and it will admit its first patients in early 2021.
The 560-bed new hospital will transform health service delivery for more than 600,000 people across Gwent.
The new hospital will deal with all major emergencies, as well as treating patients needing complex emergency or critical care.
All major cardiac, stroke and emergency obstetric patients will also be treated on the site, as well as most trauma cases.
This will allow other hospitals across Gwent to concentrate on providing routine diagnosis and treatment, without having to give priority to emergency patients.
The hospital will be home to over 40 specialist services and will have a helicopter pad for air ambulance patients.
International projects have included the supply of advanced systems to healthcare facilities in Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia.
Chris Peters, Wrightstyle’s chief design manager, commented: “Hospitals are complex buildings, with a great deal of flammable material, and with occupants who may be unable to self-rescue.
“Hospitals therefore require a very high level of fire protection, so that any fire can be contained at source without risk of it spreading.
“Wrightstyle has national and international healthcare experience, and our complete and guaranteed internal and external systems provide the perfect passive fire protective solution.”
