Craigavon Area Hospital

The new Trauma and Orthopedic Building at Craigavon Area Hospital provides state-of-the-art theatre facilities where patient dignity, infection control and a healing environment were key elements of the design. The building itself contains 3 ultra-clean laminar-flow theatre suites, a 7-bed recovery ward and a 15-bed orthopedic ward.

The Client’s brief stated the ironmongery specification had to meet a very high standard. It required a proven unique lever handle which would not only put their own stamp on the building but also be fit for purpose and provide longevity. MB Architectural also had to source a product that had a proven track record in helping deter the spread of a variety of harmful microbes.

Bronze and copper alloys have a natural ability to destroy harmful microbes relatively rapidly (often within two hours or less). Specifying the solid bronze FSB 1023 lever and pull handle MB Architectural fulfilled these criteria.
