Darent Valley Hospital
This is a new hospital located in Dartford, Kent. Their website can be seen here.
An historic panel by Charles Eamer Kempe, from the old hospital, was restored and framed to be displayed in the modern surroundings of the new Darent Valley Hospital.
Here we are completing fitting the glass.
The opening presentation and blessing of the Stained Glass.
Modern hospitals have quite low ceilings and this was just about a fit….
The installation had to consider the conservation of the stained glass. Being inside a hospital and within reach of frail patients and heavy moveable equipment, we had to fit toughened safety glass. Finally, it complied with hygiene requirements without modification from the standard design.
This installation was supplied to the maintenance staff who installed the lighting unit. We visited later and within 1 hour the stained glass was safely installed and the project completed.
