Technical support for essential & critical building projects

Our team are here to help

Within hours of the news breaking that essential infrastructure and urgent NHS construction projects must continue to cope with far-reaching consequences of COVID-19, British Gypsum mobilised a team of experienced technical consultants, dedicated to providing technical support for these vital projects.

Dave Robinson, Technical Development Manager, British Gypsum explains how the team is meeting current demands: “the projects coming into the team are an important part of the overall infrastructure supporting the COVID-19 response. As well as the large-scale temporary hospitals around the UK, we are also supporting on key schemes that play a vital role in helping the wider UK infrastructure cope with the ongoing demands of COVID-19. At any one time we are offering guidance on a broad range of technical areas including fire rating and substantiation, acoustic performance, U-Value calculations – the guidance is as broad and varied as the schemes coming into us. Whether these are temporary projects to meet current healthcare demands such as the Nightingale hospitals, or projects that play a strategic role in the wider community – such as schools and public buildings – our efforts are entirely focused on these essential projects.”
