Project & Fitout Solutions
Located seven minutes from Melbourne Airport in Keilor Park, the ‘Project & Fitout Solutions by Aidacare’ experience centre is now open. The 600 square metre space offers a dynamic canvas to facilitate curating and planning interior design solutions for green and brownfield development projects in aged care, retirement living and healthcare.
This unique experience centre enables decision makers in the furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) domain to effortlessly source equipment that is tailored to client needs, with just one point of contact. Project & Fitout Solutions evolved in response to the lack of a focused environment where FF&E industry leaders, architects and interior designers can efficiently deliver complete solutions for clients. Managing projects has historically been costly and time consuming, requiring experts who deal across multiple industries and markets.
'Fitting out' involves more than just great pricing
- The assets not only need to meet clinical care requirements but also need to meet the aesthetic objectives of the decision maker in the development.
- The installation coordination needs to be streamlined, efficient and organised to integrate with everything else that is on-the-go during site commissioning whilst managing risk and safety.
- Assets need to be backed up with service and maintenance to ensure that warranty terms are observed and that whole-of-life costs are appropriately managed.
- Fit-out and refurbishment projects need partners to work together in a trusting and pragmatic manner to achieve the best outcome.
- Aidacare has extensive experience with fit-out and refurbishment work. We are the partner of choice for many of Australia's largest Aged Care Facilities and Hospital providers. View our latest project here.
At Aidacare we work closely with procurement or property services managers to help to define an equipment range that is clinically appropriate; aesthetically appropriate and cost effective across the life of the asset.
We bring expert equipment advice and sourcing capabilities to deliver best-in-class value to our partners.
Our bespoke Procurement Systems allow streamlined ordering, whilst providing insight and budget-control for business operators. Integrated user hierarchies; authority levels; and purchasing controls empower operations-level personnel to make decisions within an effective control environment to prevent budget blow-outs.
Electronic invoicing functionality reduces administrative burden and overhead costs too.
Do you have insight into the number of “split orders” flowing under-the-radar of your monthly authorisation levels and expenditure control programs?
Aidacare can work with you to develop an accessory IP to your procurement system that fits with your existing business processes and controls without the significant costs associated with many “punch-out” systems.
