The Meadow Birth Centre is a former antenatal ward and maternity triage which has been converted into four en-suite birthing rooms named Poppy, Cornflower, Daisy and Violet.  Meadow Birth Centre has been designed to look and feel homely, colourful and bright, helping everyone involved to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process.

This style of birthing unit is relatively rare but becoming more popular throughout the UK.  Those involved with the project visited other birthing units to see what was already being done successfully.  A selection of Altro flooring and Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding was used to fulfill the hospital’s design requirements to combine original and striking aesthetics with practicalities.

Altro Whiterock Chameleon wall cladding was chosen to add stunning, bright blocks of high gloss colour in birthing rooms, corridors, kitchens and en suite bathrooms. These bursts of colour were used alongside Altro Whiterock White to create unusual and striking designs.


Altro Whiterock is a cost-effective sheet extruded from a high quality PVC u polymer. It is easy to clean, impact resistant and grout-free. It meets all current EU Directives on health and hygiene.

Safety flooring was a must for the birthing unit, and Altro Aquarius – a specialist solution developed specifically for use in wet and dry areas, for shoe and barefoot use – was ideal for this environment which sees midwives, other staff and visitors plus mothers in and out of birthing pools with bare feet.  Altro Aquarius caters for all these requirements, with one product that can eliminate the risk.
