GRAHAM Refurbishes Hospice Shop

The construction company which built three health centres in Lanarkshire has completed a pro-bono refurbishment of St Andrew’s Hospice shop in Larkhall.

A number of different sections of the shop unit were refurbished by GRAHAM Construction, including painting, rebuilding shelf units and creating new display shelves including units at the front windows.

The project was carried out over the period of a week by a number of GRAHAM Construction employees as part of the Company’s commitment to the local community.

GRAHAM completed work on three primary care health centres on behalf of Hub South West for NHS Lanarkshire in Wishaw, East Kilbride and Kilsyth.

John McHugh, Construction Director at GRAHAM Construction said: “The manager of St Andrew’s Hospice shop approached us to ask for help to carry out some work in the shop which we were more than happy to take on.

“Our team contributed many hours over the space of a week to complete the overall renewal and it has really made a different to the space inside.

“We are also involved in a number of health projects across Lanarkshire, showcasing our skills in this sector.”

“We’d also like to thank our sub-contractor, Phil Davies Contracts (PDC) for supplying the paint used to decorate the shop.”

St Andrew’s Hospiceprovides specialist palliative care to people living with life-limiting illnesses. It places a focus on supporting patients and their families, with its shop units raising money to drive forward these efforts.

Shop manager Pauline Kerr said: “Feedback from visitors to the shop has been fantastic, offering their praise to GRAHAM Construction for lending its assistance.

“The improvements have created a more welcoming interior which should drive sales and help to raise money for the vital work carried out by St Andrew’s Hospice.”

GRAHAM is also preparing to complete Phase 4 of the Monklands Hospital project, which involves the delivery of a further two new theatres. Overall, the company will complete a complex, 12-phase upgrade and replacement of the Theatres/ITU Department to provide seven new operating suites, including two ultra clean theatres, recovery area, reception and relatives' area.
