"Laidlaw worked very closely with both LOR Design Team, Ryder HKS Architects and the client. Laidlaw's experience and proven track record in Health Care projects with LOR in particular made the early task of drafting a specification straightforward. Having already completed the Haywood Hospital for the same client certainly helped with regards to product suitability, and meeting specific client requirements in specialist area's with particular reference to security and fire needs".
