Princess Alice Hospice


The project

Princess Alice Hospice is a local charity dedicated to providing high quality care and support for adults with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.

Each of the 28 bedrooms have views of the beautiful gardens and access to the external decked areas overlooking the large koi pond surrounding the building.

Our installation team were tasked with removing the existing deck and frame and replacing the decked area with new Millboard composite deck boards. Around the edge of the deck, glass balustrades with aluminium frames and handrails were installed.

Providing a safe exterior surface was of high importance on this project. Millboard composite deck boards were specified as each board is topped with an anti-slip coating that has excellent non-slip performance plus the boards are non-porous, which results in high resistance to algae growth and weathering.

The project presented many challenges especially as the main structure and frame was submerged in water but with the expertise of our in-house teams the project was delivered on time and exceeded our clients’ expectations on quality and design.
