Blaise is due to open in November 2023 - we will start taking referrals later this year
Designed by vets, for vets
Work has been progressing on turning the building shell into what we will very soon recognise as a veterinary hospital. The internal walls are being built, with the consult rooms being created and a large open space for our waiting area.
The brickwork is going in for the operating theatres and other key areas within the main hospital, with the car parking area also being created.
Most of the internal walls have been installed. There are now very clear areas of the hospital when you walk around the building. We are now starting to get the plasterboard onto the walls and start to ‘fix’ some of the electrical cabling.
The contractors have started skimming the walls, and much of the air conditioning ducting is being installed before the ceilings are put in. The car park is complete and some of the hospital areas are well defined now.
The team are currently plastering the internal walls in readiness for their first coat of paint. First is the prep area, the corridors and waiting areas. Once completed the corridors and the waiting area will have fabulous ‘pops’ of colour added.
With the internal walls now installed, we are getting our first ‘fix’ of electrical points, initial coats of paint and services are being plumbed in.
The building is now looking more like a veterinary hospital. We have 8 consult rooms, a large waiting area, and the theatres are now built, and are waiting for the equipment to be installed.
It is become very exciting now for the teams that will be working there, as we can see it taking shape!
At the end of July, we plan to install all the external signage so that the building will be easily distinguishable as a veterinary hospital.
We are very happy to finally be able to showcase the name of the building. After a year of planning, getting planning permission and a lot of design work, the Blaise signage is now installed onto the outside of the building.
This is the next stage in turning the shell into a fully functioning veterinary hospital.
At the end of the summer, we expect to install all the internal signage and graphics, to being the Blaise building to life!
The flat roof area at Blaise will house all our plant. After hiring in a rather large crane, all our plant has been installed ready to be connected to the various areas of the hospital. In addition, we have our own generator, which will allow us to carry on as a fully functioning hospital in case of a power cut.
All our medical gases will be in a secure building on the site, to enable piped oxygen and medical gases etc throughout the building.
We are at that stage in the building works, where there are clearly defined areas within the hospital. In particular, the wards are being installed, our operating theatres are clad, and all our cabinets are going in.
We have also started some of the flooring works.
We are excited to see the colourful window graphics installed. These were chosen to be eye catching from outside, whilst allowing the light into the waiting area and office space. The material is called contravision and although during the day, people cannot see into the windows, people sitting in the waiting area can still see out, thus allowing pet owners a bit more privacy.
