Improved Flow and Space Allocation for Ballina Vet Hospital Refurbishment
Racecourse Road Veterinary Hospital recently contacted Elite to expand and refurbish their veterinary hospital in Ballina, northern NSW.
The hospital was originally an old house converted into a vet surgery 16 years ago. There has been no refurbishment work carried out in the past 16 years. The owners wanted to expand and add an extra consult room, reconfiguring the layout to fit the hospital’s needs as well as providing separate dog and cat wards.
The hospital’s promise is that your fur family will be treated “as if they are their own”, with the practice providing a ‘fear free” experience for both clients and patients.
Elite’s methodology was to complete the project in three stages, so that the vet hospital’s operations were not affected. The Elite team worked their construction times around the practice to minimise the impact on the team and their patients.
“From design to completion we were blown away by the level of organisation. We did not close a single day during the construction process,” said Rachelle Beardsworth, part owner and practice manager of Racecourse Road Veterinary Hospital.
Stage 1 - included the demolition and fitting out of the steri/surgery areas, prep and recovery, laundry and imaging spaces of the practice.
Stage 2 - involved the refurbishment of the separate cat and dog wards, consult/physiotherapy room, PWD/shower areas and administration areas.
Stage 3 - the last stage of the project, where the reception/waiting areas and two consult rooms were refurbished.
“The level of organisation within the Elite team was astounding. Watching them orchestrate every transition with builders, plumbers, electricians etc. We transitioned smoothly through three stages. It was amazing to watch!”
The vision for the refurbishment was to provide a better flow and allocation of space, as well as being warm and inviting. Shades of blue, grey and white from the hospital’s logo were used throughout the fitout to maintain the brand aesthetic throughout the practice.
The reception desk features rich walnut wood complemented by fresh white accents. The light wood flooring works well with the rich, crisp colours to provide a warm welcome in the reception and waiting area.
“The styling is everything we wanted. The Elite team provided feedback based on our original thoughts and we couldn’t be happier. Our clients love it!”
