Nu-Style Products - Laminate Fabrication
Nu-Style designed, manufactured and installed anti-ligature furniture in the Huntly Ward inside Cornhill Hospital, a mental health ward in Aberdeen. Nu-Style worked with client, Chap Construction to install the furniture in the patients’ ward, which included bed head units, low level wardrobes and fitted wardrobe/desk furniture, all with flush edges and clad with 12mm SGL Compact as a key feature.
A reception counter was also designed, manufactured and installed in the reception area for visitors to be received when entering the ward. Nu-Style also manufactured Healthcare Fitment Units within the Clinical/Prep room areas, and these were then installed by Chap Construction.
Chap Group partnered with Nu-Style on this particular project because of the great working relationship and successful completion of previous projects. The success of this project was a result of Nu-Style’s ability to adapt their capabilities and work closely with the client.
One of the key challenges of this project for Nu-Style was designing a bespoke furniture with very specific requirements from the client. Patient safety was paramount to this project. Nu-Style had to adapt its design process to match the client’s needs with lots of collaboration between Nu-Style & the project team.
Nu-Style’s added value:
Before the final furniture were manufactured, a sample design was built, modeled to look and function as the finished product. The sample was examined and approved by both the NHS and Chap Construction before the final manufacturing began.
Due to the nature of the ward, Nu-Style had to adapt their capabilities to ensure the furniture was designed in a way that eliminated any risks to self-harm.
