NHS - The Modality Partnership - Enki Medical Centre
Location: Handsworth, Birmingham
Client: The Modality Partnership
Debbie Wearing, Practice Manager - said, “From start to finish Aspen have been a pleasure to work with, always liaising every step of the way...The quality of work is excellent, the workmen are very conscientious of their surroundings, clearing up as they go along.”
Having previously manufactured and fitted a reception desk for another Modality Partnership practice in Birmingham, Aspen were asked to manufacture and install, with all associated services, a large reception desk for the Enki Medical Centre in Handsworth. The desk would need increase the reception area, but needed to fit between two existing columns of the building.
Aspen turned the architect’s drawings into 3D renders and 2D manufacturing drawings. A mock-up the space, including the building’s columns, was created in Aspen’s factory. This enabled the desk units and front of the reception counter to be pre-manufactured and the construction of the desk to be trialled prior to installation on site.
Debbie Wearing, practice manager said, “We were invited to the workshop to see the desk being built, from that time forward we knew we had chosen the right company to do the work for the practice.”
From consultation with the Enki Medical centre staff to completion took only 5 weeks, but the actual installation of the reception counter was conducted in just one weekend to avoid disruption to patients, this included all the electrical services for the computers required on the reception.
Aspen are now working on a third reception desk to be fitted in the zero tolerance area at Enki Medical Centre.
