The Christie on Glasstex

The Christie on Glasstex
02/05/2012

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust is the largest cancer treatment centre in Europe, With 2,500 staff and 300 volunteers treating over 40,000 patients a year. This means there is a very large volume of people entering The Christie on a daily basis. So when any decision is made regarding the refurbishment and maintenance of the busiest foot traffic areas many factors have to be taken into account, and this proved to be the case when the refurbishment of the Main corridors on the ground and first floor of the hospital were being planned.

Bob Higginbotham, Head of Facilities Management at The Christie said, ‘The main corridors are in the older part of the hospital and as such have seen much repair and patching up over the years and at best were looking tired. The brief to our architects was to come with a solution that would be durable, decorative, cost effective and minimise disruption both now and on a maintenance basis. They came up with the Glasstex system, and this has turned out to more than fit the criteria. The ease of application meant that the corridors could be decorated quickly on a night shift without causing disruption to the day to day running of the hospital. The finished system has completely upgraded the corridors and given a modern and pleasant look to what are probably the busiest areas in the hospital, and facilitating ease of maintenance’.
