GEC Anderson stainless steel sinks, worktops, cabinets, shelving and splashbacks were specified throughout the recently completed Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex.
The brand new, two story, hospital, comprises a total of eight buildings and provides a range of primary, secondary and community healthcare services. These include urgent care, imaging, clinical investigation and testing, GP services, operating theatres, endoscopy and cardiac assessment.
Many of the clinical areas feature GEC Anderson stainless steel worktops and splashbacks that comply with Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 63, relating to fitted storage and furniture within Hospitals. Generally, worktops were fixed to composite base cabinets but in many instances, stainless steel legs and supports were deployed. In certain areas, GEC Anderson stainless steel cabinets and shelving were also specified. GEC Anderson worked directly for the main contractor, providing a full measuring and installation service, within a strict six month time frame.
The fully detailed and comprehensive specification, with drawings and data sheets, provided the necessary information from which GEC Anderson could work. This, combined with a highly effective teamwork and support from main contractor, McLaughlin and Harvey, enabled GEC Anderson to verify requirements and dimensions before proceeding to manufacture their bespoke units and then returning to site to install.
Managing director of GEC Anderson, Martin Tye, took a close personal involvement with the project. “This was a super project to have been awarded. It was very clearly specified and we could see, from the outset, that the hospital was to a very high standard"
