Given the rigours of their daily environment health care interiors need to be practical, hard wearing and robust - but that doesn’t mean they have to be dull. These days there are many options available for interior finishes that combine durability with aesthetic appeal, and many new developments are electing to incorporate them in their facilities.
Here are three unique health care projects that make the most of their interiors:
- Bega Hospital (Jan 2016)
The new Bega Hospital was built in a very unique location and the architects needed the interiors to match. Set within lush green farmland and with views of the Bega River through the large windows, the stunning views can be seen from many other places in the building. Acculine installed corner guards, handrails, wall guards, aluminium wall sheet, rigid vinyl wall sheet, door panels, door frame protectors. This “whole project solution” reflected the beauty and tranquility of the hospital surrounds, and helped deliver a state-of-the-art facility with ease of access and navigation.
- Epworth Waurn Ponds (2015)
“Luxury” is not typically a word you would think of when asked to describe a hospital, but Epworth Waurn Ponds is not your typical health care facility. Geelong’s new $277 million dollar hospital is a healthcare development like no other: think VIP rooms, mood lighting, marble nurse’s stations and luxury finishes in wallpaper, carpet and fabrics. A prestigious project like this demanded the highest quality interior finishes, including the installtion of premium quality wall and corner protection products, bed bumpers and corner guards.
- Anglican Care (2015)
The Anglican Care aged care centre in Toronto NSW featured a handpicked selection of door protection, door frame protection, corner guards and HR9 timber handrail in an array of eight complementary colours. The unique aspect of this project was that the client requested a complete turnkey package, to ensure a harmonious colour palette and seamless finish within the interior. Acculine supplied and installed custom-made door frame protectors, rigid vinyl rebated door panels, Victorian Ash handrails and polycarbonate corner guards, creating a restful, safe and welcoming space for residents and staff.
The days of drab healthcare interiors are behind us, and the importance of pleasing and harmonious environments in supporting the health and wellbeing of clients is now well recognised. These three projects have embraced this new approach to, showcasing some seriously impressive interiors.
