EAG secured a contract with Kajima UK to provide doors, curtain walling, atrium wall/roof glazing and brise soliel to the Sheffield Northern General Hospital being the largest hospital campus within Sheffield Teaching Hospital’s NHS Foundation Trust, spanning around 95 acres. The hospital has over 1,100 beds and employs more than 5,500 staff. The latest addition to the Hospital is the £30 million, 168 bed, Hadfield Wing and has been designed with the needs of the elderly very much in focus. The proprietary aluminium glazing systems of Schüco International were utilised throughout the project. The design incorporates extensive use of glass, together with a mixture of timber, render and brick cladding to create a modern looking building different to most traditional hospital wards and presents a major step forward in healthcare architecture. It has also been planned to maximise the use of natural light coming into the building via a central atrium and fully glazed corridors during daylight hours, creating a pleasant environment for staff and patients.
