Altro Whiterock used at St Paul Hospital, Vietnam
Saint Paul Hospital is a large multi-field medical complex situated in the central part of Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. Established at the beginning of twentieth century, the Hospital is currently undergoing a thorough and systematic renovation and refurbishment. As part of this program, one wing was converted to form the Hanoi High Tech and Digestive Center. With the support of international experts and state of the art equipment, the Center is designed to provide early cancer detection and effective minimally invasive surgical treatment.
To meet the high finishing standards required, 1,400 m2 Altro Whiterock White and 300 m2 Altro Whiterock Fawn were chosen for their hygienic properties, helping reduce the spread of infection to protect those undergoing examination and treatment.
Altro Whiterock, is a fully sealed wall cladding system, leaving nowhere to harbour vermin and there are no grouted joints where bacterial or fungal growth can occur. It offers a smooth, impervious system that is easy to clean and requires no special maintenance regime, saving time and ongoing maintenance cost, making this the perfect solution for the hospital. Altro Whiterock is also durable and impact resistant and meets all current directives on health and hygiene.
“One of the key purposes of this project was the provision of a facility for skills transfer from international expert surgeons, so the client wanted to achieve European aesthetic and hygiene compliance standards. We were confident that Altro products could meet the required standards, the contractor handled the materials well, and the client was very pleased with the end result,” said Nick Robinson of VK Architects & Engineers.
