‘Thoughtful design’

The Maggie’s Centre in Oldham has incorporated Allgood’s Holt ironmongery, including L-shaped lever handles, WC turns, coat hooks, doorstops, and toilet roll holders, as well as disabled toilet furniture, ‘to complete its thoughtful and hopeful design’.

Allgood said: “Handcrafted from European oak, the Holt range seamlessly blends with the hardwood cross-laminated timber (CLT) building, and reduces the impact of neuropathy for the patients.”

Built in the grounds of The Royal Oldham Hospital, Maggie’s Oldham: The Sir Norman Stoller Building, is reportedly the UK’s first hardwood CLT building. Architects, dRMM, chose tulipwood CLT ‘for the positive influence it has on people, and for its beauty, strength, and warmth’. Timber ironmongery reportedly reduces the effects of neuropathy, a common symptom of chemotherapy, that results in pain when touching cold items.
