Care: Leading the Way in Laundry Design and Planning

With over 40 years’ experience in providing complete on-premise laundry solutions to care homes across the UK, working with care home group such as Barchester, JLA offers design and build packages that take away the hassle of laundry design for new developments.

With an end-to-end service that begins long before our washing machines, tumble dryers are delivered on site, the market-leading supply and servicing provider offers a ‘one-stop’ design, planning and project management solution that means customers, architects and designers can draw upon experience and expertise that’s second-to-none, with end-to-end solutions including:

  • Industry-leading equipment
  • Ergonomic design
  • BREEAM assessments/advice
  • Full turnkey service including laundry handling system and detergent set- up and supply
  • Staff training
  • Support from over 130 service engineers nationwide

This not only increases the chances of tender success, but also means promises made can be kept after a project is won. Dave Wheatcroft, JLA’s Care Groups Director, points out what makes JLA so different:

“Right from initial consultations at the scoping stage, we can help shape laundry designs by offering practical advice on which JLA machines will make sure the new building is energy-efficient, user-friendly and compliant. We can also give budgetary guidance from the word go and remove the guesswork from pricing up equipment, accessories, installation and other laundry cost elements. In addition, we will work closely with a care home operator to provide direction on laundry handling systems, detergent supply and staff training to ensure that the facility will not only be well designed but will also operate to the highest standards and regulations.”

Partnering with JLA also gives builders, architects and others in the building chain the reassurance that sound advice will continue to be given through to the final implementation of a design. Dave continues:

“Our main goal is to take the hassle away from laundry design and installation leaving our customers free to focus on the build itself. To that end, we recruit our project managers directly from the building sector, who fully understand the importance of delivering a laundry on time and on budget."
