Works Progressing at Hospitalfield Arts in Arbroath
Works are progressing at CHAP’s project at Hospitalfield Arts in Arbroath.
Pictured above is the existing wall behind which the new kitchenette and toilets will be formed. The wall has been propped and secured using CHAP Quarries . . .
The project was a Joint Venture between NHS Grampian and Grampian Housing Association for the construction of a Drug Rehabilitation and Health Centre on the ground floor, and 53 Social Housing flats on the upper floors.
The Drug & Health Centre is accessed from the main street and houses consultation and treatment rooms in addition to advice units and clerical support facilities. The flats have a completely separate access from a landscaped courtyard to the rear of the building.
The structure of the Drug and Health Centre area is steel frame to provide open-plan spaces; the housing is timber-kit construction on top of a permanent formwork concrete transfer slab at first floor level. Elevations are clad in large zinc panels and textured blockwork, and the roof is a combination of standing seam roofing and membrane flat-roofing to balcony areas.
