A variety of Armstrong suspension systems have been used for the new South Glasgow University Hospital and Royal Hospital for Children, which was officially opened by Her Majesty the Queen on July 3rd. Armstrong supplied 70,000 linear metres of the Drywall Grid System for use with plasterboard ceilings (including curved DGS around the nurses’ stations in the wards), 12,000 linear metres of Axiom plasterboard-to-tile transition trims in corridors leading off a central atrium, 10,000 linear metres of Axiom profiles (which help with ceiling level changes, floating ceiling construction and lighting integration) and 40,000 accessories including connecting brackets, clips and hanging brackets.
Along with the Armstrong Prelude standard and non-corrosive exposed grids which combine exceptional stability with installation ease, all of these systems were installed by PFP a year before tiling to minimise damage to services in the ceiling void. The 140,000m2 of Armstrong wall-to-wall ceiling systems used at the new hospital also include the manufacturer’s pre-engineered aluminium perimeter solutions Axiom transitions, profiles and accessories.
It was also the largest project to date featuring elements from Armstrong Ceilings’ service and systems portfolio – not just tiles for acoustic and healthcare purposes but also a variety of suspension and Dry Wall Grid systems with bespoke Axiom perimeter solutions - backed by the company’s industry-leading 30-year systems warranty.
