Receptek have worked with this leading private healthcare provider in the UK over the last 3 years to achieve a corporate standard and design for their hospitals. This project included the fitted furniture for the 8 bedrooms and en-suites bathrooms plus feature walls and signage to the lift lobby, a reception desk with associated storage and specialist laundry cupboards for the corridor spaces serving each bedroom.
“I have no hesitation in saying that this has got to be as good as it gets globally. How can that be? Simply due to the hours and hours of design time, end-user involvement, prototyping and relentless quest for perfection. Unlike many private hospital bedrooms the patients in this ward will sometimes stay for months. This has to become a home for them. This is the ultimate demonstration of how Receptek bridge the ‘concept to reality’ design gap. Once the final drawings have been produced there is very little way of demonstrating the amount of value in them or tracking the total time spent. Thankfully both client and architect respected that and the end product showcases what value a strong collaborative approach can yield.”
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.
