A suspended grid system from Armstrong Ceilings that sub-contractors have found supremely quick to install has been used on a building forming part of a council’s biggest-ever capital investment programme.

Three thousand five hundred square metres of Armstrong’s Drywall Grid System (DGS) was specified for the new state-of-the-art £13 million New Dumbarton Care Home, designed by Cooper Cromar Architects for West Dumbarton Council.

The standard system has been used throughout the 23,000m2 brick and block building on the site of the former Crosslet House alongside other Armstrong systems for exposed ceilings to give the project a complete wall to wall ceiling solution. It complements a total of more than 1,400m2 of Armstrong’s 600 x 600 Bioguard Plain board tiles with 24mm exposed grid to the back of house, staff areas, washrooms and changing areas as well as Armstrong’s 600 x 600 Optima Vector tiles with 24mm exposed grid to the high-level main entrance area, and Armstrong’s 1200 x 300 metal Bioguard Plain tiles with acoustic fleece to all corridor areas within DGS plasterboard margins.

The Armstrong systems were installed by specialist sub-contractor Brian Hendry Interiors. Managing director Brian Hendry said: 'Armstrong’s DGS is without a doubt a good product and compared to a traditional MF system the installation time is reduced, with basically one of the MF installation elements removed completely. Unfortunately it is hard to equate to what extent the system was quicker on this project as other factors slowed the installation down but on other projects we have found it to be up to 25% quicker.'
