Toryglen Nursing Home

Toryglen Nursing Home

The Toryglen Nursing Home development is a part of Glasgow City Council’s multi-million pound programme to build five new care homes and four day centres in the city. Following a successful partnership on a similar project last year, DTE was brought in by contractor City Building LLP to supply attic trusses and Finnjoist floor cassettes for the 120-room, eight-wing site.


 
Furness Academy - Case Study

Furness Academy - Case Study

Furness Academy has been hailed as a ground-breaking project - one of the largest educational facilities to be developed in the UK, using cross laminated timber (CLT), as the core structural component. From conception to completion, this evaluation incorporates input from all contributors, with the aim of demonstrating the successful collaboration of specialist organisations working together professionally and coherently at all levels to ensure the safe delivery of an outstanding project - on time and within budget. The Academy has achieved outstanding environmental performance for the structural frame with sequestered carbon values of -1395 tonnes of CO2e.


 
Premier Inn, Walsall Waterfront

Premier Inn, Walsall Waterfront

The development was based on 2.2 acres of brownfield land, where more than 300 homes and apartments as well as a Premier Inn hotel were to be constructed. This was the final part of a development programme planned to transform the town which, in recent years, has seen a new hospital, college and art gallery. Walsall was in desperate need of regeneration, and this development programme has been described as a massive vote of confidence for the city centre, as employment in the local area was at an all-time low. Whitbread were central to this project, opening a large Brewers Fayre restaurant alongside the hotel.
