Twinfix walkways protect patients and visitors from the elements at the new Clatterbridge Centre in Liverpool
A new hospital in the heart of Liverpool is part of a £162m investment in expanding and transforming cancer services across Cheshire and Merseyside.
The 11-storey Clatterbridge Cancer Centre at Liverpool Hospital delivers highly-specialist care including pioneering immunotherapy and the most advanced forms of radiotherapy to the 2.4 million people in Cheshire and Merseyside, and those in surrounding areas.
It was designed by global architects BDP, who also designed Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Twinfix were delighted to be involved in this project which saw two of their structures incorporated in the building’s design.
Twinfix, designed, manufactured and installed two fully-sealed link corridors with aluminium frame and squared posts between the new hospital and Clatterbridge Centre.
Both structures have aluminium frames powder coated in grey RAL 7047, which complements the design of the new hospital. The roof glazing consists of Twinfix Multi-Link-Panels NF fitted with tough 16mm clear multiwall polycarbonate. The NF denotes that these panels conform to the HSE’s recommended drop test ACR[M]001:2014, achieving a Non-Fragile designation.
Each canopy has been fitted with vertical glazing and doors to protect patients and visitors from the inclement British weather.
