Proteus rainscreen panels for University Hospital

Proteus rainscreen panels for University Hospital

The reconstruction of the University Hospital of North Staffordshire incorporated using in excess of 13,000m2 of Proteus HR. The redevelopment stemmed for the need to modernise the existing facilities and bring together three sites into one centre, removing the old adhoc collection of disparated buildings and developing the site into a meaningful space with simple wayfinding and suitable parking facilities for a 21st century hospital site.

Proteus Engineered Façade Technology worked with Laing O’Rourke Constructions design teams including Ryder HKS and Design Buro Architects to develop a rationalised rainscreen design which offered a standard pallet of materials across the entire site. Metclad Contracts secured the façade installation package with Laing O’Rourke, over 5 phases and installed some 13000m2 of aluminium Proteus HR panels.

The main colour being a RAL 9006 pre coated PVdF paint finish which provided a linking material between the various phases. The Proteus HR panels were pre formed in flat, cranked, facetted and pre curved panels to meet the geometry required by the design. To the front entrance a bright and bold colour pallet of Red, Orange and Yellow PPC coated Proteus HR aluminium panels create an inviting main entrance and focal point to the building. To the rear a more subtle tone of Proteus HR panels with a PPC finish in a variety of blue colours was chosen to provide a more relaxing atmosphere for patients and visitors. Overall a striking, yet calming building has been created for visitors and patients and provides a modern healthcare facility for the local community
