Wellington Hospital – London case study
Natralight was chosen to install a fixed flat rooflight as part of the refurbishment project for the UK’s largest independent hospital, Wellington Hospital in London.
With an international reputation in a wide range of medical specialisms including cardiac services, neurosurgery, gynaecology and orthopaedics, renowned contractor Balfour Beatty was chosen to oversee the wider project.
Balfour Beatty was commissioned to develop a Design & Build strategy to refurbish a newly-acquired office building into a centre for minor operations and outpatient care which did not require an overnight stay.
This disused building from the 1960s was completely refurbished with the addition of four operating theatres, a one-stop oncology service and 50 consulting rooms.
The redevelopments of Wellington Hospital is one of the largest developments in the UK independent healthcare sector in the last 20 years.
Robust Fire Safety with Natralight
A crucial part of the project was ensuring the seven-storey building complied with Government Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) guidelines for hospital fire safety.
This is one of the reasons why the contractor chose to work with Natralight on the delivery of flat fixed skylights, with our product offering 60-minute fire protection glass.
Whilst offering unparalleled fire protection our rooflights give the rooms below maximum natural light which helps to temperature control the rooms and save the hospital money on energy bills.
Natralight work with Warringtonfire, one of the leading fire safety companies that helps us to maintain our quality assurance for customers and continue to produce rooflights of the highest industry and safety standards.
