In an environment subject to excessive traffic yet cleanliness an expectation, hospital surfaces are a constant challenge to maintain. Around the clock operations restricts access to address the painting needs with finishes needing to be hard wearing yet remain low in VOC to maximise air quality.

In addition to local needs, government accreditation requirements meant that general hospital conditions were under regular scrutiny and needed to be maintained. Responding to this, hospital management chose Furlong Painting to bring a number of nominated facilities at multiple sites up to the required standard and bring the facility back up to a desired standard.

The project involved painting the entire Day Surgery Unit including nursing stations, shared office spaces and corridors. Significant preparation was required prior to painting and a strategic approach to works to accommodate a busy hospital unit to ensure that the 6 day a week surgery program was not disrupted.

In order to achieve the long awaited outcome for the client, a number of pre planning meetings and daily communication with unit management ensured that the normal routine was not affected. All Furlong operatives on the site had extensive working knowledge of hospital environments and were able to deliver a high quality outcome.

Epworth Eastern is a state-of-the-art private facility providing both in hospital and consulting services.

With around the clock operations and an environment subject to considerable traffic, the hospital surfaces are continually exposed to wear and tear. All internal paint finishes need to be hard wearing yet low in Volatile Organic Compounds to maximize air quality.

For many years, Furlong Painting has successfully provided Epworth Eastern with a yearly paint maintenance program. Incorporating an annual site audit of all previously painted surfaces, a Furlong Painting representative and the hospitals Facility Manager are able to detail scheduling and maintenance targets to address the site’s needs.

Furlong Painting was able to increase and decrease the number of painters as the hospital timetable would dictate, often addressing high traffic areas on weekends, after hours and public holidays where required.

Strict induction, compliance protocols and the client’s OHS requirements were a feature of Furlong Painting’s approach to work at Epworth Eastern.
