Knauf drywall and Forth Valley
CONTRACTOR Linear Projects has taken on the biggest scheme in its 18-year history, supplying more than 100,000sq m of partitioning for the £300m Forth Valley Hospital in Scotland. The £10m partitioning, ceilings and external steel framing contract included partitioning with a wide range of acoustic specifications, walls for shafts and risers, and dry lining for the operating theatres. The materials were manufactured by Knauf Drywall, which managed to standardise components as far as possible to simplify supply chain and inventory management. The new Forth Valley Hospital was designed by Keppie and centralises acute healthcare and mental health services in the Falkirk and Stirling region.
