Operating theatres are pilot users of hygienic wall cladding

January 2016

Terveystalo in Joensuuu, Finland, has the largest network of private health services in the country. It offers versatile health, occupational health, healthcare and test services at 150 locations in Finland. Its clientele consists of private individuals, companies, insurance companies and the public sector. Terveystalo employs some 6,500 healthcare professionals.

Operating in four different locations in Joensuuu, the Terveystalo health services company wanted to bring all its healthcare functions into one centre, including doctors’ consulting facilities and hospital services. When the refurbishment and extension plans were created, specific requirements for a healthcare environment were taken into account. In addition to designing the centre to provide healthcare services, they also needed a hygienic solution for the facility, particularly for the operating theatres.

“We selected Altro Whiterock to provide the high level of hygiene needed. The wall cladding surface is perfectly even and thus easy to keep clean. When we found out about the product, it was a natural choice for us to make. Now we have this Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding in our two operating theatres, a treatment room and the laboratory’s analytics room,” said Petri Lempiäinen, general manager of the Joensuu Terveystalo.

The operating theatres have a pivotal role at the new centre in Joensuu, focusing on orthopedic surgery, including demanding operations such as hip and knee surgeries.

Markku Korjonen, from architectural agency Lappalainen and Korjonen Oy designed the new Terveystalo unit. Altro Whiterock was a new product for the architect. “A regular tiled surface has a great amount of grouted joints that are impossible to keep at the level of hygiene required. In areas such as in an operating theatre, the new wall cladding product was an interesting option. In practice, I expect it to be a far superior material for this purpose,” says Markku Korjonen.

Korjonen was familiar with Altro products, having specified the company’s safety flooring in a number of projects, such as commercial kitchens. Over 2,000 m² of Altro Aquarius was installed in the Joensuu Terveystalo in wet areas and post-operative rooms. “Altro’s safety flooring is not only safe and pleasant underfoot, but it is also durable, and easy to install including around drains and in corners. Furthermore, the material is easy to clean and thus hygienic. The product’s colour palette is versatile, so an architect can easily create the right tone,” said Markku Korjonen.

Altro Whiterock meets fire standards and it is particularly ideal not only in healthcare environments but also in commercial kitchens and clean rooms.

Altro bring colour and design flair to pioneering London trust

January 2016

Altro Suprema and Altro Whiterock Digiclad are being used at Whittington Health to help create a more relaxing, visuallyappealing space for its pioneering £3m Ambulatory Care Centre while also providing the highest levels of safety, hygiene and reliability.

Project architect Ben Monteagle of Levitt Bernstein explains Whittington Health’s vision for this new space, and how he brought it to life with a striking, yet practical solution.

“The aim for the Ambulatory Care Centre was to create a space that didn’t look clinical or institutional,” says Ben. “The Trust wanted patient wellbeing to be a key factor, using a design that flowed, that was relaxing, colourful, visually appealing, full of light and with large open spaces where patients could relax and feel at home. In essence, a contemporary area that didn’t look like a hospital.

“Our realisation of that vision was to use colours in very creative ways through wall artwork depicting local scenery, such as Hampstead Heath, woodland and ponds.

“We were delighted when Altro suggested we use their Altro Whiterock Digiclad wall cladding for the artwork as this was a cost-effective way to integrate artworks within a clinical environment. Altro Whiterock Digiclad is robust and easy to maintain, and it absolutely met our aim to integrate practical with aesthetics. It gave us a lot of scope for design.”

Ben Monteagle continues: “We also developed a way-finding strategy, to help patient navigation, which uses coloured leaves embedded into the flooring. The flooring itself needed to be very practical, with excellent slip resistance, and a neutral base which would act as a good backdrop for the colourful design within the centre.”

They chose Altro Suprema safety flooring, a non-sparkle safety flooring available in 40 shades which is already used elsewhere in the hospital.

Main contractor, Overbury, appointed Jemic, an Altro Whiterock Premier Installer to install the Altro Whiterock Digiclad.

Jemic MD Matt Robinson says: “The design of the build evolved over time. This showed just how easy and flexible Altro Whiterock Digiclad is to work with. The product is prepared off-site, but we were still able to make alterations when we arrived, to fit in with new designs, with some additional finishing and cutting.”

The Altro Suprema flooring was installed by Loughton Contracts, which has more than 30 years’ experience installing Altro products.

Loughton Senior Project Manager, John Doak, says: “Altro Suprema is a product we install on a regular basis and it’s great to work with."

Overbury Project Manager, Geoff Charlett, says: “We were very pleased with the quality of the Altro flooring and wall cladding installations. We recently completed flooring assessments 12 months after fitting, and it looks as good now as when it was installed.”

The Trust’s Assistant Director of Estates, Mike Veale, comments: “The Altro Whiterock Digiclad looks immaculate and everyone comments on it. It’s a great way to bring artwork into a space.

“We use Altro Suprema throughout the hospital because it performs from as aesthetic point of view, while also ticking all our boxes for hygiene and practicality. Cleaning is easy, too, and it still looks as good as it did 18 months ago. I am a big fan of this product.”
