Receptek were commissioned by contractor Interserve to present a design proposal to the NHS Trust for the fitted joinery at the all-new Endeavor Cancer Care Centre at the James Cook Hospital in Middlesborough. This included the main reception desk, privacy screens in the waiting area, workstations in the Linak control rooms, specialist storage and IPS systems in the bunker rooms and associated utility areas.
“Particularly rewarding was the client’s immediate endorsement of the lavender theme. This flows from the main reception right through into the bunker rooms and provides an abstract contribution to this healing environment. Another Receptek contribution has been the introduction of the suspended ‘Halo’ above the main reception. Due to the space being double storey the halo helps draw visitors to the reception point and creates a more welcome feel.”
Through Recepteks delightful response to the initial brief, our hospital’s children’s ward has been provided with a new bespoke staff base which continues to give pleasure to staff, patients and visitors alike.
Reception desks within hospital environments endure a tremendous amount of wear and tear. Our furniture design sought to create a sleek, contemporary and timeless desk that the Trust can reconfigure and replace any elements when spoilt. The design result is practical and impressive. Receptek implemented all of our ideas and also added additional input to the design that made the finished product better than we imagined.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Receptek during the development of staff bases and receptions on the Barts and the London Hospitals project for a number of years. After a comprehensive and iterative process involving the Trust, Architects and us as the Building Contractor, Receptek came up with the winning design which impressed all the parties involved. By combining features such as elegant aesthetics with the practical benefits of replaceable panels, the product developed has satisfied all of the needs as specified at the outset.
Recepteks design proposals were 1st class and the quality of the finished product more than delivers the original design intent.
I have just returned from Guthrie Wing, and the refurbishment works look absolutely terrific. Many thanks to the whole team. Recepteks response to a very tight schedule was as good as their promise.
