Kiwi Design Project Manager, Richard Levett, is thrilled to have been invited to help officially open the new reception area at Quarter Jack Surgery, Wimborne, for this fast-turnaround, minimal disruption refurbishment. Joined by GP Partner & Practice Trainer, Dr Andrew Redman MBBS BSc(Hons) MRCGP, Richard & Andrew formally opened the reception on 21st June 2018.

The Quarter Jack Surgery is a well-established NHS GP Surgery in the centre of Wimborne which has been running for over 70 years. Supporting over 14,000 patients, the Quarter Jack Surgery has a team of 9 doctors, 12 administrative staff and a full nursing team.

Quarter Jack Surgery engaged the services of Kiwi Design to completely update and refurbish our Staff Reception area. From the initial design phase we found Kiwi to be superb in their suggestions on lighting, air circulation, furnishings and provided valuable input in making the best use of the space.

In a busy GP surgery any refurbishment can be a stressful time as we have to ensure patient safety but also ensure that staff can still work efficiently with the everyday running of the surgery.

All this was taken into consideration with the Project Planning and Richard Levett (our assigned Project Manager) made sure that within the 3 week project timeline there was as little disruption as possible. We were kept informed of progress throughout the project and Kiwi worked with us constantly to ensure that we met the needs of our staff and patients.

The whole project was run efficiently and Kiwi contractors were helpful and accommodating. Even our ‘last minute change of mind’ regarding some screening between desks was dealt with without any issues and we truly felt that nothing was too much trouble.

As a company Kiwi Design come highly recommended and we are absolutely delighted with the results of our new reception area with our staff really looking forward to return to a modern, light, airy and comfortable working environment.

The 3-week project for the Quarter Jack Surgery was a full design & refurbishment package with Kiwi Design as the Principal Contractor and supplier of all materials and services, giving one point of contact for the whole project. The Kiwi Design team created a bright, airy and professional space for the 12 person office team with new furniture and fittings to match the company branding. A new suspended ceiling provides low energy lighting from LED panels and a new glass partition wall with new carpets, electrics, data cabling, decoration and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) complete the space.

The refurbished reception area now includes a bespoke reception desk, providing a larger reception area, with a low-level section for wheelchair access, exceeding the current Disability Access Regulations.

The whole team felt a real sense of achievement on this project. Being able to complete the project in such a tight time frame, minimise disruption and allow the surgery to continue fully functioning was quite the challenge and we are thrilled with such a successful outcome that the client loves.
