The conversion of an existing light industrial building into a satellite renal dialysis unit, serving the community and reducing the need for patients to make long, tiring and often stressful journeys to hospital. The new unit is able to provide specialist patient care, haemodialysis treatment, peritoneal dialysis and outpatient services.
Our inter disciplinary professional team remodelled the existing building into 18 treatment stations, consulting rooms, staff facilities and utility spaces. End users are very pleased with the finished scheme and have made particular reference to the light and airy feel achieved through the use of natural timbers and the introduction of colour in the treatment areas which reduced the feel of a clinical environment. The unit staff consider their working environment to be greatly improved, enhancing both their efficiency and patient care. Such is the success of this new unit it has been used as a benchmark for future renal dialysis schemes.
