We were contacted us to assist with hospital drywalling and installation at Baragwanath in Soweto as part of their new offices.
They already had a clear picture in mind of the layout required and had plans already drawn up.
The new hospital drywalling was installed in an empty shell with all the previous walls, ceiling ext already removed.
The new hospital drywalling was fixed to existing wall, pillars and ceiling with standard door frames fitted.
After all dry wall was completed the electrical articulation was completed .
As can be seen the final product was not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing and fully caters for the hospital drywalling requirements.
The hospital drywalling structure was created from galvanized floor track which was fixed to the floor with nail in screws, aluminium natural anodized wall channel fitted to the ceilings and walls where required and galvanized studs as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with drywall screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the hospital drywalling structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.After the drywalling structure was completed 12.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used.
Windows was fitted using natural anodized aluminium glazing sections, natural anodized beads, bubble gasket and 6.38mm safety glass.
Doors fitted had natural anodized aluminium frames, natural anodized hinges, medium duty hollow core doors and standard lock sets.
Joint was then fiber taped and two coats Rhinoglide applied. Once dry, the joints was sanded to a smooth finish in preparation for painting.
It was an absolutely a pleasure and honour to do work at the biggest hospital in South Africa.
Well done to the team!!!
