Installation quote
"Hospitals have high quality - often heavy - fixtures but as the use of a room changes you're often limited to certain areas on the wall to install them. LaDura is strong enough to negate the need to go back and reinforce with plywood - meaning you can easily change the use and fittings of a room."

Impact Quote
"The project surpassed cost, time and quality objectives. Many of the staff have stated that since moving into the Sid Watkins Building in January 2015 it has had a really positive impact on the team. The whole environment, from lighting, technology to amount of space ensures it is conducive to working and a great environment to work in”.

Project description

The Walton Centre NHS Trust embarked on a major expansion programme to deliver a new three-storey building: Sid Watkins Building. The new building houses an expanded 30 bed specialised rehabilitation centre, outpatient department, UK-leading pain management programme, education and training department, corporate offices and relatives overnight stay accommodation. The design brief was to focus on making the patient feel like they have entered a luxury hotel rather than a hospital, but as a healthcare facility the partitions need to meet extraordinary acoustic, fire, impact and hygiene demands.
