Adel Beck Children’s Home is a secure children’s home in Leeds for 24 young people aged 10 to 17. It was designed by Keppie Design and built by BAM Construction adjacent to the site of an old, outdated home which was no longer fit for purpose. The laundry was equipped by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems. The home opened in January 2015 and is now fully occupied by young people many of whom will have very complex problems and require a lot of support to turn their lives around. The residents generally stay for between two months and two years.
The laundry is equipped with an 8kg and an 11kg Amazon high spin washers, and a Huebsch Twinstar stacked dryer providing two x 14kg drying capacity. The laundry is in operation full time from Monday to Saturday and handles all the laundry from the home including bedding, kitchen items and young peoples’ personal clothing.
Jo Palmer who is responsible for housekeeping at Adel Beck told us, “We are very pleased with the equipment – it all seems to be working fine. With the larger capacity machine taking such a big load we have been able to reduce the number of washes we do from three to two each day which saves time, energy and is more cost effective.”
