Whether users are long term patients or just visiting the facility, street furniture plays an important part in the external environment of a healthcare facility. Raised planting units in courtyards can provide a sensory experience or a pleasant break from the wards, while litter containers help keep the externals clean and tidy.
Langley Design have a range of street furniture solutions in varying materials, suitable for any size project. We can create bespoke items of furniture to match the existing scheme finish or colour. Use our vast experience in street furniture to advise you on the products suitable for their final use. We also make sure the project has the products fit for purpose at a price that is suitable for the budgets required.
Healthcare Project Case Studies
To keep the external areas of any healthcare building free from litter a good waste management policy is essential. To help make the process easier Langley Design have a wide selection of litter containers and recycling units available.
When vehicles, building and pedestrian are in the same space bollard protection is normally required. Help protect pedestrian and building entrances from vehicle intrusion with bollard delineation. Fixed, removable or fold down bollards are available depending on access needs.
To soften the hard edges of a building raised planters help create a welcoming feel to a building entrance. Planting areas can also be used as therapeutical areas to help improve the lives of inpatients.
External dining areas allow the patients or visitors the ability to venture away from the interior of the healthcare facility where they spend most of the day and spend more time outside socialising or enjoying lunch in the open air.
All healthcare projects will need some element of external benching provision for patients and visitors to make use of the external landscaped areas and take the weight off their feet while enjoying the open air or waiting to be collected.
More and more people are trying to help the environment and save on fuel costs by cycling instead of driving. This is why is is necessary to provide adequate cycle parking spaces and shelter from the elements for those people who choose to cycle to the healthcare facility.
