As part of multi-million PFI scheme to modernise facilities at Portsmouth’s Queen Alexandria Hospital, Lakesmere was appointed to design and install the building envelope solution for the new Pathology and Rehabilitation buildings.

With the ‘whole life costs’ of the new buildings a priority, Lakesmere worked closely with main contractor Carillion to ensure that the envelope package comprised materials that required only minimum maintenance and combined durability with the attractive decorative finish desired by architects Building Design Partnership.

Such was the success of Lakesmere’s integrated solution, which features Sotech Optima rainscreen, NBK terracotta cladding and, on the new Rehab building, a Kalzip aluminium roof, that much of the same specification has subsequently been used on the main hospital building.

In addition to the roof and wall cladding, Lakesmere also completed the installation of the window and door systems together with the roof and cladding to the 60 metre link bridge gaining access into the existing hospital building from the pathology facility, which was partially pre-fabricated and then craned into position.
