Published on: 5 October 2016

project-care-homes-en1The Heatcare company provides luxury care homes for the elderly in south England, and have worked with Walraven for many years. They are one of the UK’s most highly-respected and accredited contractors working in the care industry, building a reputation for high quality design, delivery and engineering expertise. Heatcare is committed to providing technical excellence and quality workmanship.

The Ultimate Goal

Heatcare asked us to work with them to find a way to speed up the installation process for the mechanical systems throughout their care home projects without sacrificing quality.

The Perfect Planproject-care-homes-en4

We recommended our Walraven RapidRail® system as the fast and flexible solution. This included our Walraven BISMAT 5000 clamps which are perfectly suited to plastic pipe systems where expansion is expected.

With the added benefit of pre-fabrication in our own factory, we could deliver pre-assembled units for immediate installation.

Collaboration is important on these kinds of projects early in the planning process. Accurate information is critical to make sure that the pre-fabricated systems fit perfectly.

At a care home location in London, the entire ground floor was installed in 1.5 days.  Normally this would take 1 to 2 weeks. Gavin Hayes, Project Manager at Heatcare commented:

“Walraven RapidRail® is our preferred pipe support system for installation
projects. project-care-homes-en3It’s a great quality product that is fast and easy to install. We have saved over 150 hours installation time using this product range. We have also used Walraven’s design, take-off and pre-fab services which helped the project run very smoothly. We would highly recommend Walraven products and services”.
