Project Overview

Lisburn Primary Care & Community Centre is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility that houses 6 GP practices, diagnostic imaging, physiotherapy and a pharmacy. The four-storey building is part of the Lagan Valley hospital complex and provides vital healthcare services to the community including adult and children’s mental health services as well as allied health services and administration for outreach services.

We were specified from the initial design stage by architects Scott Tallon Walker and main contractors O’Hare & McGovern to provide a full access strategy that combined high-performance timber doorsets with fully integrated ironmongery and access control solutions.. Our timber door manufacturers Elite Doors supplied a full suite of fully certified timber doorsets for the entire project, which were manufactured specifically to meet the projects performance criteria and requirements at their manufacturing facility in Mallusk, Antrim. We worked closely with Elite to ensure that all doorsets were pre-prepared for all KCC hardware, ready for on-site installation. Our team of BM Trada joinery experts facilitated the compliant installation of all doors, ensuring a consistent, high standard of quality across the entire project, from manufacturing through to installation and our service division will continue to work with the long-term facility management company to ensure the effectiveness and longevity of these doors going forward.

We designed an access strategy for the project to facilitate the flow of people into and around this busy healthcare building. We carefully examined the specific requirements of this project in areas such as fire safety and security and then specified the correct blend of fire door, hardware and automation solutions to achieve a safe and functional strategy that worked seamlessly throughout the building.
