David Bailey Furniture Systems has been chosen to supply furniture to the brand new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals, all part of a new build by University College London Hospitals (UCL Hospitals). UCL Hospitals is combining the two hospitals at a brand new, state-of-the-art centre in Huntley Street London. This has been co-designed with patients and staff and supports UCL Hospitals’ vision to provide top quality patient care, excellent education and world class research. The new building is currently expected to be completed in Autumn 2019.
Services at the new hospital will be based in two floors below ground, and five above ground and David Bailey has manufactured furniture for every floor, in a contract worth GBP 250,000. Furniture manufactured and supplied includes over 600 base and wall units; over 300 worktops; and 16 staff bases; plus an arc-shaped reception desk for the main hospital reception on the ground floor. The furniture will be used in dental procedure rooms and clinical rooms, staff kitchens and break-out areas; and store room shelving.
Colours chosen were, in the majority, light grey units. The staff bases and kitchen units have white laminate tops, and the kitchen units have dark grey door panels.
Trevor Gillman, managing director at David Bailey Furniture comments: ‘Having worked on many projects with UCLH it was exciting to be chosen to supply the furniture for this important phase of UCLH’s expansion. Our mission has always been to support architects to make their life easier when designing in these complex environments and to support contractors when specifying and implementing the final project.’
