The £212m Dumfries and Galloway Hospital was Bennett Architectural’s third venture using the Modern Methods of Construction for a large construction project.
To be specific, our team worked alongside Laing O’Rourke using the offsite construction method known as Design for Manufacture and Assembly or DfMA.
Kawneer’s AA720 pivot and fixed light windows were installed into concrete panels at Laing O’Rourke’s Explore Industrial Park before being transported to the site.
This offsite approach to construction is proven to decrease carbon emissions, save time on site and improve safety due to less need for working at height.
Bennett Architectural’s work at the site focused on the wards area where curtain walling was also installed.
Lionel Grant, Managing Director at Bennett Architectural commented,
“This was our third project working with Laing O’Rourke using DfMA, which has proven benefits to the environment.
“Once again the team at Bennetts made light work of all aspects of this project, delivering a hospital that the community of Dumfries can be proud of.”
The 344 bed hospital opened in December 2017.
