To meet a growing need for easy access care, the NHS Walk-in Centre, Guildhall Walk, Portsmouth was created from an existing government building by a full internal reconstruction and refurbishment.
Security and Sign Services worked with the architects and main contractor to create a cost effective robust ironmongery specification that would meet the needs of patients and staff.
The premises needed a secure and professional look whilst still remaining friendly to potential patients.
The use of aluminium return to door levers on ash veneer doors enabled the building to meet the various needs of the disabled including the partially sighted.
The automated front door allowed ready access for less physically able and by control from the reception desk using an entry system was able to offer security to members of staff.
