Recently, we’ve had the task of painting the corridors at a Leeds Teaching Hospital, to give it a fresh, clean look. Formed in 1998, this is a busy hospital in one of the UK’s biggest cities, meaning that general wear and tear on walls and floors builds up quickly.
Holding Reset accreditation, which provides verification that our team hold the correct skills and qualifications, as well as HSE compliance, allows our team to work in hospital settings. Having worked with hospitals previously, this was another great opportunity for our skilled team to repair chipped and scratched corridors with a fresh, new coat of paint, helping to create a more pleasant environment for patients and employees.
With around 17,000 employees, this Leeds Teaching Hospital is on a large scale – meaning there are hundreds of corridors, most of which we needed to give life to again after being neglected for the past few years. It’s important that hospitals look clean and tidy, for hygiene and safety reasons as well as providing the best setting for patients.
During this project, it was important to work efficiently with the aim of causing the least disruption to employees and patients, which required effective planning and communication throughout. We also kept our clients informed throughout the process, ensuring they were familiar with our schedule and any changes that needed to be made or altered.
