Shortlisted project at the 2022 Facade Awards ‘Best use of rainscreen using specialist metal’
A fully integrated cancer treatment centre that will provide exemplary care to the local community. The Christie at Macclesfield encompasses over 28,000 sq ft at a key corner on the Macclesfield General Hospital estate. The location will deliver cancer care services to patients who previously had to travel over an hour to the Manchester Oak Road facility.
Now, over 1,500 existing patients benefit from are closer to home across East Cheshire, North Staffordshire, and the High Peak area of Derbyshire, saving 90 hours of travel on average during a six-week course of treatment.
The Scope of works included the PFC Corofil COSB 25 open state cavity barrier and CCFS full fill cavity barriers fitting back to gypsum weather defence boards and behind curved Tecu Brass fully supported flat lock cladding system and Equitone rainscreen.
The COSB 25 open state & CCFS full fill cavity barriers have been tested to latest test standards and have been 3rd party certificated by UKAS accredited fire engineers as recommended by the ASFP.
“The technical support received from PFC Corofil from inception to completion is second to none, they appreciate the complexities of construction and engage with us on the journey providing successful solutions to projects, with their intensive testing and evidence based products”
