Full Case Study
As part of a large refurbishment programme, the King Edward Building at Bristol Royal Infirmary has recently undergone a major renovation.
Bristol Royal Infirmary needed modern, durable interior finishes that would stand up to the daily wear and tear expected in a busy hospital environment. As they’d used Acrovyn Wall Protection in other renovation schemes in the past, CS was a natural choice for the King Edward Building refurbishment.
CS supplied and installed (via our in-house installation team Conspec Contracts) an extensive wall protection package, defending the walls throughout the building from wear and tear caused by impact damage.
2mm Acrovyn Textured Sheet was installed at dado height throughout the corridors of the hospital and was also used to protect vulnerable doors throughout the hospital.
In the wards and bed bays, BL10HE Bed Locators were installed to protect the wall and equipment behind the bed from impact damage.
With corners being one of the most susceptible parts of a building, CS supplied a range of corner guard models to suit the protection requirements of each location. For the most vulnerable corners, CS supplied severe duty SM20 Corner Guards – featuring a continuous aluminium retainer and an Acrovyn cover, allowing the profile to flex on impact. For less vulnerable corners, CS offered stick-on Acrovyn SCG50 and SCGv50 (a variable angle version) corner guards, offering economical, medium duty protection from corner damage.
At the entrance to a new multi-faith sanctuary space within the hospital, CS supplied a custom printed Acrovyn by Design Wall Mural featuring a colourful, abstract design created by Willis Newson, in partnership with artist Ptolemy Mann (a renowned textile artist and architectural colour consultant). Because the mural was created in Acrovyn by Design, the beautiful words written within it now protect the wall, as well as comforting patients.
“A place of refuge, of shelter, of protection, where nature and the world of spirit meet. A place to use, to come and go, to bring and leave or to wait and be.”
This sanctuary area was designed to be “inclusive, without being bland, aiming to be one space that anyone could use no matter what their faith.”
CS’ protection package will ensure the King Edward Building is easy to clean and maintain for years to come.
