RIBA Stages:


Comprehensive refurbishment and alterations to a hospice ward to provide improvements to patient accommodation and add respite facilities. A detailed survey of services throughout the ward was undertaken by Fatkin before developing the concept layout in close coordination with the staff and patient liaison teams. Fatkin produced detailed tender and construction drawings with input from a range of specialist advisors including CQC compliance and medical gases.

The Hospice requested that the refurbishment achieve a less clinical and aesthetically more tranquil and comfortable environment for patients, visitors and staff. Fatkin specified appropriate finishes and lighting throughout the floor to achieve a pleasant and safe setting.

As of summer 2022, the Hospice have instructed Fatkin to undertake a similar exercise on a second ward within the same building.
