In a major contract win, SIAC was appointed to provide a pre-fabricated supporting structure and mixed cladding for the King's Mill Acute Hospital.

The £320M PFI project consisted of the extensive redevelopment of the existing facility to create a single unified hospital comprising 28 new wards, a new state-of-the-art Diagnostic and Treatment Centre, a new Emergency Care and Assessment Centre with an out of hours GP service, and a dedicated Women & Children's Centre.

Three T-shaped ward blocks, linked together over 5 floors, now rise above the uniquely designed Diagnostic and Treatment and Women & Children's Centres. SIAC used a mixture of facades including its own unique offsite unitised wall cladding system, 'StructurClad', which was successfully installed on the Walsgrave Hospital Project and on hospitals in Swindon, Derriford and Dartford. The 'StructurClad' element of the works will be manufactured in in SIAC's workshop in Avonmouth, Bristol, UK.
