Kays MedicalBack to Case Studies
Kays Medical is a long-established Liverpool company, which was for many years based in Shaw Street, on the outskirts of the City Centre. It has been a market leader in the provision of medical supplies, first aid training and health and safety training to British industries. The company has developed its commercial partnerships and has also become the UK’s leading specialist supplier to the Occupational Health Industry – providing an array of medical supplies and equipment to this sector.
For some time the company had been seeking a new site to address these issues by providing the business with contemporary new build facilities to increase efficiency, whilst also offering opportunities for future expansion. Architects Denovo Design, who had worked for the client on the refurbishment of his existing premises several years ago, were engaged to design the new building alongside contractors Williams Tarr Construction.
The open-plan design of the office space supports the collaborative culture, which is at the very heart of the business, whilst also being easily adaptable to suit changing user requirements. The office space is light and bright and is punctuated with splashes of colour, including the vibrant and novel sound absorption ‘lollipops’, which as well as being practical, cannot help but to raise a smile!
Designed to maximise environmental efficiency, whilst providing a pleasant environment for employees and visitors alike, the building benefits from a temperature-controlled indoor environment, with external solar shading reducing solar gain and super-efficient LEDs automatically adjust to optimise light levels.
Newmor provided our Liverpool Map wallcovering, which was designed as part of our collaboration with Stephen Walter. A geographically accurate view of Liverpool’s roads, railways, build-up areas and green spaces with some cheeky anecdotes to hunt for!
