The Grange University Hospital is a new £350m hospital in Cwmbran, Wales. This state-of-the-art facility forms part of a wider strategic plan which will see Aneurin Bevan Health Board significantly modernise its health service provision.
Originally known as the Specialist Critical Care Centre, the 471-bed facility will bring together more than 40 complex and more acute services onto one site and serve over 600,000 people per year.
As a major healthcare project, main contractor Laing O'Rourke commissioned Central Roofing South Wales Ltd to design and install the roofing and cladding systems – with ROCKWOOL® providing the ideal solution to meet the architect's non-combustible specification.
The site is expected to be operational in November 2020, much earlier than a previously announced date of 2021. This is due to construction programmes being accelerated to ensure the facility could be partially opened as a Nightingale (COVID-19) Hospital, if needed.
