Help for Heroes Case Study
Posted on Nov 8, 2016
We’ve recently worked with the Tedworth House Recovery Centre for the Help for Heroes charity. Tedworth House was originally built in 1750 and acquired by the Ministry of Defence in 1897. In 2011 the building was leased to the Help for Heroes charity as a Recovery Centre for the wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans.
The Recovery Centre faced many challenges both internally and externally, which is why Courtney Thorne were recommended to them as we were able to put together a bespoke specification to suit the needs of the Recovery Centre. One specific challenge that stood out was having a call system at the Reflection Pond. The Pond was over 100 meters away from the nearest building, to overcome this we installed waterproof call bells and a signal booster located midway we were able to create a robust wireless network which ensures a reliable nurse call messaging system.
Mark Teadham, Facilities Manager at Tedworth House commented: “Replacing the old system was vital as it’s essential we have the most reliable equipment for our wounded heroes. The Courtney Thorne system has provided a simple to use system that covers all areas of the Centre and grounds reliably, whilst giving us the flexibility to reconfigure things as required. We are really grateful for their professional service.”
