Trusted names in the care sector for three decades, Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell Healthcare provide a home from home style of care for more than 2400 people in the UK. A high-quality laundry service for bedding, towelling and residents’ clothes is a vital part of its complete range of services.
Girbau will provide Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell Healthcare with its full planned preventative maintenance (PPM) cover including all labour for one or two pre-arranged preventative maintenance visits per year, plus a gas safety regime and a reactive pay-as-you-go breakdown cover on laundry equipment across all of Sunrise’s 45 national sites.
The agreement also details three laundry refurbishment projects planned for the first 12 months which will include Girbau’s complimentary laundry design service covering site surveys, CQC compliant laundry design, full M&E CAD drawings, and equipment specification to meet care home capacity needs.
“Girbau has supported Sunrise for more than 10 years,” said Adam Keens, director of facilities at Sunrise Senior Living. “They give us good maintenance support and customer service with absolutely no fuss. They are very responsive. Girbau equipment offers the best balance of equipment reliability and operational efficiency.”
