As part of a £2million investment programme to refurbish all of their Scottish care homes by 2013, Bupa appointed Pacific Building to complete the refurbishment of the 180-bed Quayside Care Home in Yoker, on the baks of the Clyde, with a project value of £700,000.
The works, which comprise the full refurbishment of all residents’ bedrooms and communal facilities, including lounges, dining areas and kitchens, in addition to the installation of wet rooms and specialist bathing equipment, began in November 2010 and were completed in April 2011.
The refurbishment included new equipment, flooring, decoration and furnishings, providing the best quality and comfort for residents, who all participated in the refurbishment by each choosing their own room’s colour scheme.
As the Care Home was occupied throughout the refurbishment, Pacific phased the works to ensure minimum disruption, while still delivering the highest quality of finish.
Pacific Building managing director Brian Gallacher said: “It’s fantastic to have been appointed our first project for Bupa, and we’re delighted to have been tasked with the delivery of Quayside’s refurbishment.
“I’m confident that we have the skills, experience and track record to complete the projects to the standards expected of Bupa as a care provider. We’re always committed to providing the highest quality of service for all of our clients and hopefully this will be the beginning of a good working partnership with Bupa.”
