Case Study – Wolper Jewish Hospital
“We had the Altro flooring in our kitchen previously for over 20 years and were very happy with it. Altro showed us the wall and flooring ranges and took us to inspect several sites. We were very impressed with the quality. Impressive looks and serviceability!” Linda Cumines, Consultant Dietitian - Wolper Hospital.
Wolper Jewish Hospital has one of the highest nurse-to-patient ratios in Australia, offering 54 spacious air-conditioned private rooms with windows that open to fresh air, modern ensuites and in-room services. The Hospital has built a reputation for outstanding medical care and their modern interiors provide a caring, peaceful atmosphere. With recent updates to the commercial kitchen, they needed a modern flooring and walling solution to match the rest of the Hospital.
Wolper is the only hospital in the southern hemisphere to have a full-service fresh cook Kosher kitchen. Altro and Willobee Floor Service Sales worked closely with the hospital on designing a unique design which would be contributive to the methodology used for cooking at Wolper. We utilised our coloured flooring and coordinating Altro Whiterock panels to identify the different zones for the meat kitchen, milk kitchen and neutral zones of the kitchen.
The Altro Whiterock Chameleon panels have added a splash of colour, which they have been successfully utilising to write instructions or motivational quotes, using chalk markers.
Not only does the Altro solution provide all the safety, hygiene and cleanability a kitchen requires but also a form of creativity in colour, design and functionality. This also assists how people perceive the environment in the “way-finding” method.
Altro supplies wall cladding and safety flooring. Altro's product range includes flooring for buses and rail, hygienic wall cladding for a variety of applications, and doorsets and ceilings.Learn more
