Modern facility is a picture of health

METAL Technology has provided a package of doors, windows and curtain walling solutions for the new Maryhill Health and Care Centre in Glasgow.

The building was designed to replace the old health centre as part of the city’s wider regeneration plan for the area. 

Services include GP practices, physiotherapy, podiatry, community dentists, district nursing, health visitors, community mental health services, a youth health service and health improvement teams.

With a project value of approximately £12.4 million, the facility features Metal Technology’s System 17 SP and System 17 Capped curtain walling systems alongside a combination of System 5-35 Hi Tilt & Turn windows, System 5-20D doors and LV023 louvres.

The full height atria provides views to waiting areas and reception points across multiple floors, while the sky-facing windows promote natural light.  

Metal Technology said it was selected for the project due to its ability to provide proprietary barrier load tested external grilles as an integrated solution onto capped/flush silicone pointed curtain walling within ‘tight budget constraints’. 

The fenestration configuration is described as maximising the potential natural ventilation provision whilst using the minimal number of window openings.

Jackie Kerr, head of operations, north west locality, Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership, said, “The new Health and Care Centre is a state-of-the-art building, giving increased capacity and more services to local residents of Maryhill in a welcoming modern environment.”
