Epworth Eastern is a state-of-the-art hospital with 223 beds, an 18-bed level 3 critical care unit, a 24-bed cardiac unit.
In an environment subject to considerable traffic, the hospital surfaces are continually exposed to wear and tear.
Around the clock operations would need to be strategically considered in order to gain access to all areas in need of paint maintenance.
Finishes needed to be hard wearing and low in Volatile Organic Compounds to maximize air quality.
For a number of years, Furlong Painting has successfully provided Epworth Eastern with a yearly program of general paint maintenance. Incorporating an annual site audit of all previously painted surfaces, a Furlong Painting representative and the hospitals Facility Manager were able to construct a programme with detailed 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.
