Project Background

The Rosie Birth Centre is a new build construction of a specialist birth unit on the existing site of Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge – commissioned by Cambridge County Council. The Birth Centre will be divided into three floors with the first being dedicated to admissions and birth areas, the second for recovery and the third for intensive care. The Rosie Birth Centre is being extended to deal with the rise in birth rate as the unit now has around 5,800 births a year – a massive increase from 3-4,000 when it was originally built in in 1983.


Silicone 825 Buff was used on the vertical expansion joints and horizontal compression joints.

Silicone 825 Mid-Grey was used to seal around external storage/maintenance doors.

Silicone 825 Anthracite was used to seal around the external aluminium windows.

Hybriflex 480 was used for all general sealing work internally – vertical corner joints, around door frames, wall plasterboard joints and anywhere else where an overpaintable sealant is required internally.

Silicone S50 was used to seal all sanitary units as well as around the ceiling lines and skirting’s to provide a clean aesthetic edge. Used to seal birthing pools, reception counter areas and corridor side bumper rails.
