Franco Emirien goes for Gyproc

Gyproc's penetration of the burgeoning Middle East healthcare market is continuing, with news that the Company's high performance lightweight metal systems have been chosen over traditional heavy block work for another major new hospital project.

The new Specialized Rehabilitation Hospital, a purpose-built specialised rehabilitation facility on Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Street, has been designed to provide leading edge treatment for a range of private patients in facilities that include 4 Presidential and 4 Royal suites, as well as a further 156 fully equipped bedrooms.


Designed across nine over ground floors and three basement levels, the project is under construction by Main Contractors    Eastern International(Bukhatir Group) (Abu Dhabi Branch) and Wates Construction International. To meet the client's demanding performance standards, internal walls and partitions were required to provide high levels of robustness, in order to prevent knocks and scrapes from beds, trolleys and other mobile equipment, particularly in corridors and other high traffic areas, as well as high levels of acoustics and fire performance.


The final specification, therefore, included GypWall ROBUST, a partition system that meets the most extreme BS 5234 strength and robustness standards, as well as the versatile GypWall CLASSIC and GyprocShaftWall, a market-leading system designed to meet the extreme fire and acoustic requirements of risers and high speed lift shafts.


Drywall sub-contractor, Trade Line, will install the Gyproc systems, valued at almost AED 1.7 million, throughout the high rise complex, with Specialist Distributor, Gemini Building Materials, working closely with them to supply the components to site against a pre- determined schedule.
