Fourth Façade Focus event features Tolworth Hospital New Build Project

Facade Focus

PRA hosted it’s fourth Façade Focus event on 12th October with guests from across the facades industry including architects, developers, contractors and manufacturers.

This time we featured our Tolworth Hospital new build project, an NHS mental health facility in South West London.  We were joined by speakers Victor Muniz and Jing Zhi Tan from Ryder Architecture who spoke about the vision and design of the buildings and Emma Shakespeare from Sir Robert McAlpine who spoke in depth about the buildability and considerations unique to a project such as this.

Anri Doda ended the presentation with a talk on the technical challenges of the building façade followed by a Q&A session which sparked an interesting and lively debate.
