A healthcare fit out may present a few more challenges than other contracting projects. This is because buildings in the health sector need to function properly, be aesthetically pleasing and take into account any healthcare compliance laws. Here at Premier Group, we fully understand the needs of a hospital fit out and we will collaborate with any healthcare establishment to make sure that any construction works run smoothly and are a success.
It goes without saying that the first aim of a healthcare fit out is to make sure that any technical facilities are installed properly. From full hotel refurbishments, to the addition of a few pieces of medical equipment, our experience as healthcare fit out contractors will ensure that we deliver an ergonomic and fully-operational building, with all the required facilities to keep people fit and healthy.
We also understand that a healthcare practice needs to evoke a sense of calm, comfort and confidence. This is why a healthcare fit out will not only involve the installation of specialist equipment, but it will also take into consideration the design of waiting rooms, seating and reception areas.
After the past couple of years, we have all become more aware of the importance of hygiene and cleanliness, but in places such as hospitals, this has always been a large part of day-to-day life. We take our job as healthcare fit out contractors very seriously and will always design and construct a building so that it is safe, clean and sanitary.
Another area of our expertise is hospital refurbishment. If a hospital needs to expand, or replace outdated facilities, we can help with the design, organisation and installation of new materials, systems and furniture. It goes without question that a secure power supply and reliable electrical features are key to many hospitals, and it is always worth updating these facilities to bring a reliable health service to patients. Therefore, it’s good to know that we can also help with electrical contracting in the health sector.
One of our most recent healthcare fit out projects has been the installation of a modular building at Norwich NHS to provide the Trust with additional single onsite training facility.
This project has been extremely rewarding and exciting as the timescales were extremely tight to achieve – having just 4 weeks to design a substantial foundation, pour reinforced concrete and crane lift the building onto its final resting position.
As usual, we rose to the challenge and a 120-tonne crane was used for a 48 Hour period to lift 12 prefabricated modules to create the training facility.
Not only was the construction of the building a huge success, but the internal configuration of the building was completely stripped out and then fitted out with LED lighting, non-slip safety flooring, storerooms for training equipment, breakout space, 4 large classrooms with a capacity of 120 people and state of the art audio visual equipment.
All of these facilities would make sure that the nurses and staff who passed through the centre would have the best environment to learn in. It is a safe environment that takes into account healthcare compliance laws and has all of the necessary features to make training run as smoothly as possible so that the NHS can continue providing essential support to the people of Norwich.
So, if you’re looking for professional healthcare fit out contractors to oversee the construction, design, installation or refurbishment of a hospital, GP practice or any other health-related establishment, get in touch with Premier Group today. We will use our years of experience to make sure that your project is a hassle-free and successful operation.About Us
