Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Aberdeen
The strategic objectives of the custom-built centre are to provide flexibility for a redesigned emergency care pathway between community health partnership services and the acute hospital.
Offering the complete package of ease of installation, innovation and discreteness which is so important in the health care industry. With the project worth a total of £91 million, more than a quarter of a million pounds worth of Geberit products have been used in the new build project, including more than 50 miles of Geberit pipework.
With energy efficient design and materials being key to the sustainability of the new construction, Geberit HDPE is particularly suited to this development as it is a simple compound of carbon and hydrogen atoms, which consumes less energy during manufacture and transport than steel, cast iron or copper pipes.
More than £100,000 worth of Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel pipework has also been used on this project, and the press fitting system will not only help to reduce maintenance issues but is also far more easy to install than conventional methods.
Helping tackle the issue of noise control is Geberit’s Silent-db20 drainage system, whilst more than 400 Geberit Duofix wall-hung framing systems have been used in the public and private washrooms of the new Emergency Care Centre as a hygienic, easy to clean solution.
