 Design and refurbishment of surgery reception and offices
 
 
 Reception refurbishment for disabled access

new disabled access reception

The Kiwi team designed and fitted a bespoke reception desk for the surgery reception. The desk provides a larger reception area, with a low-level area for wheelchair access, exceeding the current Disability Access Regulations.

The internal side of the desk also contains bespoke “pigeon holes” for files, forms and other paperwork.

 

 Maximising use of space with brand colour scheme

fully refurbished offices

With desk space for up to 12 staff members, the new office design maximises the use of the available space, with new furniture and fittings to match the company branding.

The Kiwi design team managed, installed and completed all works, including a new suspended ceiling with low energy LED panels, supplied and fitted the new glass partition wall, new carpets, electrics, data cabling, decoration and MVHR.

 

 Minimising disruption for working surgery

minimise disruption for working surgery

During the office refurbishment, the Kiwi Design team were very much aware of the importance of minimising disruption, to allow the surgery to remain fully functional during the office refurbishment works.

Considerations included installing a temporary disabled access ramp at the rear of the building, and safely routing visitors around working areas.

 

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 returning to a modern, light, airy and comfortable working environment.
