So, how’s the refurbishment going at 4 Goldington Road? What have we been up to?
Firstly, Peter Olivadoti has been busy painting classical shades of green, duck egg and grey… along with crisp white gloss on the architraves, picture rails and skirting. The hall got new egg-and-dart ceiling roses to match the original cornicing. Like it?
What else? I hear you ask… Remember what I was saying earlier about the year in regards to working in a building with no heating? Happily that’s no longer the case, take a look at the new radiators that RW Knights have fitted for us. Stylish and warm – even in this 1830/40 building.
Speaking of the plumbing, the disabled toilet is complete, and Adam Cooke electrician and team have fitted the hand-drier, and sensor-activated lights to what is now a fully-accessible toilet to wheelchair users, and includes a baby-change facility.
Also, the newly refurbished kitchen (thank you Peter O.) is now all ready for our practitioners’ tea breaks.
The flagstones in the hall have been relaid, cleaned (to remove all the bitumen) and matching ones sourced from salvage. All that remains is the final sealing of this lovely feature. The hallway is a great mix of modern and classic, with the flagstones and classic duck-egg walls, egg-and-dart cornicing and ceiling roses alongside modern brushed metal industrial pendant and wall lights. It provides a relaxing and inspiring waiting area.
The final touches a clinic needs are of course the basins, couches, sharps, desks and chairs.. and they arrived from their various suppliers in dribs and drabs until finally we were at a stage where we could complete our environmental health requirements and pass the requirements to start providing all our treatments from Monday 25th April!
And of course from the outside, you can see that the skips are gone, the accessible ramp is finished, and all we have to say is: Come and visit us soon, you are very welcome!
