Neaco supplies balustrade for major hospital project

Spectrum powder-coated aluminium balustrade fitted at Bradford Royal's new hospital wing

The balustrade specification was for Bradford Royal Infirmary's new hospital wing development

Neaco has supplied a major balustrade specification at Bradford Royal Infirmary’s new multi-million pound hospital wing.

The wing was designed by Bowman Riley as part of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s investment in improving patient care at its hospitals.

Stairwells, ramps, bridges and void areas feature Neaco’s Spectrum powder-coated aluminium balustrade with a variety of infills appropriate to their location, including vertical rails, midrails, glass and perforated mesh.

Partner contractor, BAM Construct, built the wing housing two new modern spacious wards to accommodate paediatric services which will transform children’s services and futureproof against the known population increase for this age group.

The development also includes a new elderly care ward and a state-of-the-art intensive care unit with increased single-room provision.

The wards are linked across the front with an atrium entrance, improving access to all wards and departments to the rear of the BRI site.

The main entrance at the front of the BRI has undergone a major overhaul with a new reception area which houses a new patient advice and liaison service (PALS) and bereavement centre. The refurbished entrance also provides new shops, a coffee bar and a restaurant.

Available in powder-coated aluminium or stainless steel – or a combination of both – the Spectrum range is characterised by smooth, clean lines offering a high architectural aesthetic which is durable and maintenance-free.

Modular assembly is achieved with internal fixtures and provides low-energy, eco-friendly construction requiring no welding or hot works.
