McMullen Facades Joins Clatterbridge Cancer Centre Scheme

McMullen Facades, part of the Lakesmere Group, will be working alongside main contractor Laing O’Rourke and architects BDP to deliver a £11m façade contract for The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust’s new specialist hospital in Liverpool.

The 11-storey new build hospital will play an important role in improving cancer services across Merseyside and Cheshire and is centrally located in Liverpool, adjacent to the existing Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the University of Liverpool.

BDP’s modern design of the new hospital embraces the use of daylighting to maximise the sense of light and space, and McMullen Facades will play a key role in the creation of the building’s attractive and highly glazed façade.  As part of McMullen’s scope of works, the team will undertake the design, manufacture and installation of the fenestration package, including both unitised and stick curtain wall systems, bolted glass systems, aluminium doors, windows and rooflights. Both the unitised and stick curtain walling will be manufactured at McMullen’s very own state of the art UK manufacturing facility.

As an attractive contrast to the glazing, McMullen will also deliver the rainscreen and cladding package that comprises a striking mix of transparent, translucent, opaque and graduated fritted panels.

McMullen Facades will commence work on site in April 2018, with overall completion of the scheme expected in 2020.
