Elite were appointed by the main contractor in 2014 to supply the ironmongery on this prestigious project in the heart of Liverpool, we supplied over £1.4M of architectural ironmongery and automatic door pieces for the 640+ bed facility.
This comprised of supplying ironmongery to over 4,500 door sets over two buildings and providing a solution for 116 sets of automatic opening doors, which included emergency breakout units. There was also a proportion of lead lined doors supplied to theatres and x-ray rooms, which needed Elite to design bespoke ironmongery to meet the door and frame thickness as well as the fire rating.
Elite also played a pivotal role in designing the master key system which included approximately 3,000 cylinders under a 71 sub-suite system. The project required weekly design meetings with the main contractor, architect, hospital trust and various sub-contractors and at times we had staff based on site which this project demanded.
