Bennett Architectural will undertake its largest DfMA project to date, providing high-quality glazing solutions for the £350m New Grange Hospital in Cwmbran, South Wales
Bennetts will work alongside main contractor Laing O’Rourke, supplying and installing Kawneer AA100 curtain walling systems, doors and windows.
Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) will be used to add glazing to concrete panels off-site at Laing O’Rourke’s Explore Industrial Park before being transferred to Cwmbran.
Lionel Grant, Managing Director at Bennett Architectural, said:
“This is the biggest DfMA project we have taken on so far, but we have no doubt our multi-talented team will make light work of it.
“We have previously worked with Laing O’Rourke on three similar hospital projects in Staffordshire, Cumbria and Dumfries using DfMA, which has many construction and environmental benefits.”
Liam Cummins, Head of UK Building at Laing O’Rourke added:
“Our team brings a wealth of experience in innovative healthcare construction and in engineering expertise.
“We are absolutely focussed on delivering a hospital that the people of South Wales will be proud of.”
Work at The New Grange Hospital is set begin in the coming weeks and be completed in 2019.
