Baggeridge Prescribes Brick Remedy For Hospital

Standing proudly in six acres of ground is the new Tiverton Community Hospital constructed using bricks from leading manufacturer, Baggeridge.

The hospital, built on a former brownfield site, includes a Casualty and Outpatients department, two 20 bed acute wards, a 12 bed Mentally Ill ward, Diagnostics, a maternity unit of nine beds and a doctors’ Group Practice centre. To undertake such a large scale project, architects, Chapman Taylor Healthcare, needed a brick manufacturer that could provide a simple look for the exterior of the building but that would also be sympathetic to the local vernacular.

Robin Beynon, director of Chapman Taylor Healthcare said: “Before starting the project we considered a number of different manufacturers, but what we particularly liked about Baggeridge’s Red and Cream Gilts brick was that they matched the local brickwork and offered a soft yet defined texture.”

The Red Gilt was used for the majority of the two storey building with the Cream’s adding design detail and providing a lighter colour to internal courtyards.

The long standing relationship that Chapman Taylor has with Baggeridge spans over 15 years, and Robin firmly believes that it was the company’s high quality products, service and price competitiveness that enabled them to win and complete this recent project.
