First phase complete - internal works handed over

The site team have now completed the 25-week programme for the internal refurbishment and remodelling of the Maister Lodge Unit in Hull. Internal works at Maister Lodge have been handed over, with the 4th Pod undergoing a total refurbishment to become a secure unit for the elderly.

Progress so far

The internal works consists of four en-suite bedrooms, one accessible bedroom with en-suite, a hoisted bathroom, dining area, ADL kitchen, a clinic, therapeutic, sluice and laundry rooms as well as a nurse station and visitors pod.

The five bedrooms including en-suite (with one accessible bedroom), display neutral colours, with a bright feature wall and door, including en-suite shower and toilet facilities. The bedroom furniture has been specifically designed to be anti-ligature to ensure maximum safety.

The accessible bedroom and en-suite includes an in-shower chair as well as various safety railings within for extra support.

The hoisted bath will provide better access and more comfortable mobility for patients.

The ADL (activities of daily living) kitchen area is very spacious and modern, and looks very homely. This will give patients a feel of independence, whilst maintaining safety and security for patients using the facilities.

The nurses station is a well-sized, ready to work room, with hand-washing and electrical plug facilities. It’s an easy, accessible room for the nurses to be able to pop in and start working straightaway on laptops or any other devices whilst remaining in the Pod.

The pictures below speak for themselves – the site is a credit to Graham and the site team. This specialist Pod will benefit so many patients, with the visitors room giving family members a warm environment to socialise.

The overall internal finish is immaculate and will definitely feel like home for the residents. A great job done by all!

Over the next two weeks

Over the coming weeks, we look forward to seeing the completed garden, including planters, which is due to complete at the end of the month.

As well as this, two modular building units are also due to complete by the end of August. The main use of these buildings will be for staff members, including staff wellbeing areas, including a tea room, as well as small and large meeting rooms.
