Hawthorn Resource Centre
Project Duration:

Client: Staffordshire County Council
Project: Refurbishment of specialist children’s facility in Burton upon Trent
Project Duration: 20 Weeks

We completed the refurbishment of Hawthorn Resource Centre, Burton-on-Trent, for Staffordshire County Council. The centre is used by children with disabilities for short breaks and also provides respite care.

The appointment included converting a study into a specialist bathroom, which features an Arjo Huntleigh Malibu bath and hoist, and converting two ground floor en-suite bedrooms so that they were completely DDA compliant; these rooms also included the installation of specialist baths and hoists. In the bathrooms we installed brightly coloured designer tiles that continued the centre’s bright, fun and playful design theme appropriate for younger people. We also fitted electronic door closers to the bedroom doors, which were connected to the fire alarm system and new light fittings were installed throughout.

We also transformed a former cloakroom to create a new specialist interactive sensory room that featured bubble tubes, UV lights and a soft play area to enhance the children’s learning experience.
