The onus on healthcare design professionals to create buildings that are a great deal more than places to heal is part of a movement towards making healthcare establishments better environments for the patients, staff and visitors alike.
GenesisCare provides the highest levels of patient-focused care across a network of purpose-built cancer centres. When they needed a new flooring solution for their Windsor facility, project managers Ward Robinson chose international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply products.
The vast swathe of Gerflor products installed would include over 120m2 of Taralay Impression for the chemotherapy rooms, 1200m2 of Taralay Impression Control safety flooring for a host of public areas where slip-resistance is a must, together with 200m2 of Mipolam Accord EL7 being installed in the MRI areas. This rich trio of high-quality flooring reportedly delivered the technical performance and aesthetics Ward Robinson were keen to achieve. Jackie Dent, director of Ward Robinson, said: “We chose Gerflor products because the design options available were perfect for our interior scheme. Also, we have worked with Gerflor products before and they are superb to work with.”
