Pearlazzo PUR highly durable sheet vinyl flooring and Polysafe Wood fx PUR safety flooring were installed throughout the facility by flooring contractors Jepsons Limited of Darwen, Lancashire. This facility was originally a minor injuries department with an out of hours GP’s surgery attached but thanks to the refurbishment it has been transformed by main contractors JMBC Ltd into an urgent care centre which opened in February 2015. The centre expects to attract an increased number of patients, from the 40 per day it saw as the previous minor injuries unit to up to 120 per day as a successful urgent care centre.
Pearlazzo PUR sheet vinyl flooring in complementary fresh shades of Lemon Ice 9702 and Mint Crisp 9706 were used in corridors, nursing stations, reception areas and waiting rooms at Halton Hospital.
As a contrast to the pastel tones used in corridors and circulation areas within the hospital, Polysafe Wood fx PUR safety flooring in Warm Beech 3297 was fitted in the treatment rooms.
Lee Bushell, Building Surveyor at Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Trust commented, “Overall Polyflor’s flooring helps create a clean and bright atmosphere where we deliberately used a combination of colours and designs as way finding aids for patients with dementia or those who are partially sighted. The corridor and circulation areas being one colour helps people find their way around the facility and the contrast of the wood effect floor in the treatment rooms helps the patient recognise that they are entering a different area.”
