"GTEC Megadeco is pre-finished so there's no need for us to apply a primer sealer to the surface of the board, making it much quicker to paint. As a result the project progressed without any delays from our side."

Impact Quote
"The Building looks fantastic. The Royal Infirmary is a very unique building in the community and it plays a really important role in providing access to health services to that community. When we took the façade down we could see the contrast and what a brilliant job had been done. They have managed to bring in a modern twist inside while keeping the buildings character inside."

Project description

Cardiff Royal Infirmary has been at the heart of patient care for the people of Cardiff since 1883. Once the only hospital in the area, this Grade II listed building required some looking after itself. As part of a £30 million redevelopment of the site, Laing O'Rourke was contracted to carry out an extensive refurbishment of the clinic to bring it into the 21st Century, providing a range of health services including an Out of hours GP Facility, therapy services, radiology and outpatient clinics. The challenge however was to upgrade and modernise the buildings interiors while also preserving its character, integrating it's period features into a functional and hygienic clinical environment.
