Worksmart worked alongside main contractor Balfour Beatty to supply and install glazed partitioning solutions for Woodland View, NHS Ayrshire & Arran’s new £46m mental health and community facility in Irvine.
Balfour Beatty’s pledge to support local employment and subcontractors throughout the duration of the project ensured that 23% of the workforce hailed from Ayrshire, secured our involvement and 72% of the £46m funding was spent locally.
John Scott, Project Director for Woodland View said: “Ensuring that the local community benefited was absolutely integral to the project from the outset. Together with Balfour Beatty, we were committed to ensuring that as many local people as possible were provided with employment opportunities at the site.”
Our expertise in architectural glazing saw a combination of bespoke Forza primed timber, glazed screens (fire-rated and non) erected throughout the wards and public areas. In total, more than 500 pieces of glass were installed into 140 individual screens that were made up of 23 different screen types.
Worksmart are delighted to be part of the project with our strong history in the healthcare sector successfully completing projects at the Southern General, Glasgow Royal Infirmary and the Royal Victoria Maternity Unit in Belfast.
