The G360 wet room installation began in September 2021 following approval of Gainsborough’s proposed design concept. The lead time and works took longer than normal due to the pandemic; however, Gainsborough persevered on behalf of St. Mary’s. When all fixtures and fitting were available, the two specialist fitters began and completed the wet room within four weeks instead of a normal two. Nevertheless bearing in mind all the challenges faced, this timescale remained impressive. Due to heightened infection control procedures, all Gainsborough representatives adhered strictly to the Covid policies set by St. Mary’s so residents and staff were safe. Despite being a complex build in a live care zone, Gainsborough diligently achieved what was expected and its attitude was commended by the whole care home team.
Jo continues: “The Gainsborough guys were superb; they followed our Covid polices to a tee. They tested everyday, continually wore masks and were sensitive to the needs of surrounding residents. They completed all the work as quietly and efficiently as possible, so distribution was kept to a minimum. Their working practices are to be fully recommended to any care provider seeking an accessible wet room or bathroom. As our dedicated account manager, Ian oversaw all the work and he made sure the difficulties faced, particularly with drainage, were resolved without delay. His communication was spot on. We knew our building was older than most and would present difficulties; however, G360 got round them and we are 100% satisfied with the end result – it looks fantastic.”
Now installed and in constant use, St. Mary’s new wet room incorporates the latest in accessibility innovation. It is lighter, spacious and more welcoming – providing a better bathing experience for residents.
We appreciated our building was older than most and would present difficulties however G360 got round them and we are 100% satisfied with the end result – it looks fantastic.”
