The team behind the £250 million [$374,907,500] redevelopment of Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield [United Kingdom]has announced a deal with architectural aluminum glazing specialist Technal for the supply of more than 1,500 windows and doors.

Fabricated and installed by Quest Solutions in a £2m [$2,999,260] contract for MPG Facades, [U.K] the windows will be inserted into cedar cladding, render and brickwork and the systems will be finished in a durable dark gray polyester powder coating. Each window is double glazed using a combination of clear toughened glass, laminated, low-emissivity or solar control glass to suit the different elevations and orientations.
