Duration

42 Weeks

Styles&Wood has completed the refurbishment of an existing nursing and residential home in Watford for a leading healthcare provider. The refurbishment, across four wings of the buildings, included works to 120 en-suite bedrooms, reception areas, dining rooms, lounge spaces, staff rooms, a hair salon, kitchen and food preparation areas, quiet rooms and medical rooms.

From new relaxing environments to state-of-the-art bathing equipment, the wide range of improvements was designed and installed to provide better services, support and a higher standard of living for the residents.

COORDINATING A RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME REFURBISHMENT

As the care home was 90% occupied at the time of the works, Styles&Wood could only work on five bedrooms a week, allowing five days for the works and two for decanting and moves. Liaising closely with staff at the care home and the family of residents to have the identified bedrooms empty, was crucial to the continuation and speed of the programme.

Each of the rooms was standardised as much as possible and units were manufactured off-site. Both the private sector and the NHS are increasing the number of beds for the elderly and repeatable, standardised rooms improves the quality of the environment.
