Biggest to date

Bennett Architectural will undertake its biggest DfMA project to date, providing glazing for the £350 million New Grange Hospital in Cwmbran, south Wales.

Bennetts will work alongside main contractor Laing O’Rourke, supplying and installing Kawneer AA100 curtain walling systems, doors and windows.

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) will be used to add glazing to concrete panels off-site at Laing O’Rourke’s Explore Industrial Park before being transferred to Cwmbran.

Lionel Grant, managing director at Bennett Architectural, said: “We have previously worked with Laing O’Rourke on three similar hospital projects in Staffordshire, Cumbria and Dumfries using DfMA, which has many construction and environmental benefits.”

Work at The New Grange Hospital should be completed in 2019.
