Health & Care Homes
Working in the health environment delivers a unique set of circumstances and challenges. Having started our journey in the delivery of new construction hospitals and care facilities over time we have worked on more and more occupied residential care and health schemes.
These vastly different scenarios have at their heart the needs of people who find themselves either temporarily or permanently being vulnerable and therefore processes and training are vital to the successful delivery of all projects.
K&M McLoughlin have established a number of initiatives and provide ongoing training to all operatives to ensure they can demonstrate empathy and sensitivity and are able to raise any concerns over people or safety in an appropriate way.
As part of our internal processes K&M McLoughlin provide a full review of the specification and finishing schedule and are able to advise via early engagement with the delivery and design team on any concerns and innovations identified. This is particularly important with regards to hygiene and durability as the consequences of mistakes impact directly on the health and wellbeing of patients.
In addition to the process above and as part of our Risk Assessment and Method Statement specialist considerations for vulnerable residents will be identified and practices and sequencing developed to minimise disruption.
Our services include:
- Internal and external painting
- Wide width and digitally printed bespoke wallcoverings
- Equality act compliant colour scheming
- Durable hygienic coatings for NHS HBN 00-10 environments
- Fire rated systems for communal areas
