Workplace wow treatment for Halifax healthcare company
Gama Healthcare Ltd, a world leader in the manufacture and development of infection control products for the healthcare sector, has moved to brand new premises and almost doubled its Halifax workforce from eight to 15 in the last few months.
Their new, two storey workplace is the former Yorkshire Water building in North Dean Business Park. The interiors have now been furnished and fitted by Yorkshire-based Ben Johnson Interiors and the building has been renamed “The Fellows Research Centre” after one of the company’s founders, Adrian Fellows.
Gama management was keen to achieve a modern, comfortable yet practical look to their new facility, with informal collaboration areas, multiple private meeting rooms, breakout areas, and large boardroom on the ground floor, with desk areas on the first floor.
The entire workplace was to represent impeccable quality – to reflect the high standards of Gama’s healthcare products. Similarly, all workplace furniture was to be of the very best – and appropriate for an innovative global company. The boardroom in particular was to convey distinction and style whilst also offering a flexible space for training.
Training forms a large part of Gama’s work and the company frequently conducts hospital and health infection control workshops and demonstrations on its premises.
For research and training purposes, a fully fitted, authentic “hospital” room has also been included in the building, complete with genuine hospital bed and healthcare equipment as you would expect to find in an NHS facility.
Ben Johnson Interiors provided space plans and a furniture presentation to demonstrate the best use of the space along with a range of top quality furniture and workplace products to compliment the design.
The end result has been well received by Gama Healthcare. Mark Hallinan, Senior R&D Associate, who was closely involved with the project, says: “We’re so pleased with our new workplace interior. It’s exactly how we wished it to be and it’s been a huge morale boost for staff to work in such stylish yet practical surroundings.”
