Howorth Air Technology Ltd were selected by the BUPA Cromwell Hospital to redevelop a floor within their flagship hospital to create a dedicated Adult Intensive Care Recovery Suite. MIDDAS supported Howorth and their professional team through concept and detailed design, installation and commissioning.


Howorth required a modular partition system that was manufactured off site and delivered ready to install. The system needed to integrate with their specialist equipment and services installation while achieving the HTM specifications and fire rating required for the facility. To add a further design dimension, BUPA also wanted to incorporate switchable smart glass throughout the facility for enhanced patient privacy.


The proven M100 bi-panel and mono-bloc partition system was selected after MIDDAS were able to demonstrate conformity to the hygienic, acoustic, structural and fire rating requirements. The M100 framework is designed to allow services to be routed through it, and to support the secondary equipment supplied by Howorth.

The flush glazing and door sets with integrated smart glass were installed throughout the facility, in both fire rated and non-fire rated specification, to achieve the high levels of patient privacy required by BUPA and their clients.
