The Charter Integr8 range of shutters has been praised by the architects and the construction company responsible for designing and building the North Huyton Primary Care Resource Centre in Knowsley, Merseyside. The project, valued at over £4m, is yet another prestige care development funded by the Government’s NHS LIFT initiative.
The North Huyton Centre is designed to improve community access to a wide range of services including GP and dentist surgeries, community services, facilities for district nurses and health visitors and a pharmacy. However, its location in a comparatively deprived area puts it at an increased risk of vandalism and burglary. Charter’s integrated shutter system offered an ideal security solution.
“As shutters are integrated into the cavity of the brickwork, they look attractive and do not detract from the overall appearance of the building,” explains a spokesman for the leading architects. “We specified Charter as they ensured a professional service with a tried and tested range of built-in shutter concepts for today’s build styles. They were keen to work with us at the very earliest stage of the project to ensure the correct specification.”
