Hitchin Health Centre
A warm welcome to clinic in Hitchin
Hitchin Health Centre, in the county of Hertfordshire, cares for hundreds of patients each day. Each of the Treatment Rooms is defined by a different colour from the Trovex Brilliance colour collection, the most extensive range of bright colours on the market. Inside each consulting room, the walls are finished with Trovex Diamond hygienic wall cladding, including a feature wall of the same bright colour as the door.
Graham Bell, Head of Capital Projects for NHS Hertfordshire, was impressed with the ergonomics. He told us ‘The Trovex plastic walling fitted to clinic rooms at Bedford Road Health Clinic provides us with a colourful environment which is not only readily cleanable/wipeable (important in healthcare to enable infection control) but also hardwearing. Its hardwearing nature provides a finish which is bump and scuff proof, providing a longevity of finish and alleviating the future need/cost/ disruption of redecoration’.
Trovex Gallery, the printed wall cladding range, displays the acme of pictorial wall finishes in two areas of the Health Centre. As you step into the surgery you are greeted with a large daisy design in the waiting area. The other design comprises a cheery daffodil image.
Trovex Gallery uses the latest technology sheet material to receive the high resolution images and a wear-resistant coating to ensure full protection for the image.
Involved from the start
Trovex is well-known in the industry for its friendly, can-do attitude, and vast range of bold colours, and this project was no exception. The client and the architect were very appreciative of the technical support and advice received from Trovex. At design stage, we helped realise the dream by providing samples of full size images and advice on the best types of images for the project.
Modular wash station
Maintaining control of infection is vital in health centres. Trovex created the Hygipod, an ideal solution to infection control around basins, one of the most infection-prone areas. The Trovex Hygipod proprietary wash-station solution offers unrivalled performance and speed of installation.
The unit comprises two access panels, soap dispenser and sanitaryware. The access panels are constructed in such a way as to minimise joins, enhancing hygiene.
The colour scheme co-ordination isn’t just for the consulting rooms: the wall finish chosen for the reception areas was designed in with the seating fabric and flooring colours to produce a stunning visual greeting for the whole health centre.
