South Glasgow University Hospital
The new South Glasgow University Hospital is the largest capital health care project in the UK. Over 14 floors and 160,000sq metres, it houses 1109 adult and 256 children’s beds. As part of the scheme, six art projects were commissioned, including a scheme to create 22 eye catching images that would help people to visually navigate the hospital. Corian was used for it’s design versatility and its proven track record as a reliable and hygienic surface for healthcare environments. The panels were fabricated using applied CNC technology to cut out the various ‘Jigsaw’ pieces of Corian and then painstakingly composed each panel with seamless bonding, and many hours of careful hand finishing.
The result is spectacular—a truly innovative, individual and unforgettable addition to the character and wayfinding of the new hospital.
The works comprised:-
- Close collaboration with the design teams.
- 3 axis CNC fabrication.
- Precision engineering.
- Seamless bonding.
- Hand finishing.
- Site installation.
