About this project
Tangram Architects chose us to manufacture and provide specialist hospital furniture for the new, £6.5 million Pershore Cottage Hospital in Worcestershire. The project is a joint venture between Wychavon District Council and South Worcestershire Primary Care Trust. The contractor was Ashford Construction of Coleshill, Birmingham.
We manufactured the following healthcare furniture:
- Smooth lines
- Handle cut-outs within drawer units, eliminating sharp corners and protrusions
- Wardrobe doors have piano hinged shelving rather than hanging rails.
Healthcare furniture at Pershore Cottage Hospital
The furniture designs feature smooth lines and handle cut-outs within drawer units, eliminating sharp corners and protruding knobs or handles, while all wardrobe doors have piano hinged shelving rather than hanging rails. Patient safety and protection has been paramount in the design of the furniture.
The Pershore Cottage Hospital scheme provides around 4,000 sq. m. of accommodation over three floors. The ground floor medical centre includes 21 consulting rooms and a dispensary. The first floor hospital provides in-patient beds in either four bedded wards or single rooms. All have ensuite facilities. On the second floor there is a National Health Dental surgery and office space for school nurses, health visitors and other community workers.
The project is a joint venture between Wychavon District Council and South Worcestershire Primary Care Trust. The contractor was Ashford Construction of Coleshill, Birmingham.
