Furniture helps create ‘world-class’ acute hospital

Deanestor has manufactured and installed over 5,000 furniture items in a £1.4 million contract for the new Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.

Built by Laing O’Rourke, the £212 million hospital was designed by Ryder Architecture with NBBJ. A palette of materials was developed to convey longevity, and ‘to create an uplifting, person-centred, and world-class hospital facility’.

Deanestor manufactured over 300 bespoke bedheads finished in a natural oak laminate, with provision for medical gases, electrics, nurse call, and lighting. The bedheads were designed for each room’s specific requirements, with over 40 variations, and installed by Deanestor’s own team, with removable panels for easy services access. 

Deanestor also supplied co-ordinating floor-based fixed furniture, including shelving, cupboards, worktops, and cabinets, and laboratory furniture for chromatography, blood transfusion, histopathology, and microbiology areas. The Trespa benching, supported by powder-coated white steel frames with adjustable feet, was supplied in a range of sizes, in perimeter, peninsular, and ‘island’ configurations.
