Fire Protection for New Build of Community Hospital


Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda, Llwynypia is a 108-bed community hospital situated in the heart of the Rhondda Valley. R Lewis and Co (UK) Ltd was part of the project team responsible for the construction of a 13,500sq.m new-build clinical accommodation which replaced out-dated and inappropriate facilities. The £23m facility celebrates the reconciliation of a contemporary aesthetic style with a contextual response while providing an exemplary healthcare facility for the community.


Lewis & Co (UK) Ltd was contracted as an integral partner in this very large project which spanned over 2 years for us as a company. Whilst building a close working relationship with Cowlin Construction we completed a full spectrum of services. Despite many challenging areas for all on this project we were able to provide the time, effort and solutions that helped ensure all involved were completely satisfied and assured with the fire protection services provided.

We started applications on the structural steelwork by providing the primer and intumescent coating treatments. Once ready we moved on to the flexible cavity barriers above the fixed ceilings and took care of all the fire stopping and air seal requirements.
