Ronald McDonald House in Gothenburg is being renovated – with FM Mattsson 9000E mixers in all the bathrooms
The Ronald McDonald House in Gothenburg is adjacent to the Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital, and provides accommodation for families of children undergoing specialist treatment at the hospital. Three years ago, Ronald McDonald House was extended to a capacity of 41 family rooms. Now the oldest rooms are being renovated and FM Mattsson 9000E mixers and showers will be installed in all the bathrooms.
RMC Gothenburg is one of five Ronald McDonald Houses in Sweden. The House was built in 1999, providing accommodation for 600 – 700 families per year until a major extension was completed in 2017, which increased its capacity to 800 – 900 families per year. The purpose of the House is to offer families a home away from home during a very challenging time in their life.
Now the oldest rooms are being renovated in four phases, in order to cause as little disruption as possible. The fourth and final phase has started and is scheduled for completion by late June.
High hygiene, quality and energy efficiency requirements
FM Mattsson 9000E shower and basin mixers will be installed in the new bathrooms of the extension and in the renovated bathrooms. The 9000E is FM Mattsson’s best selling mixer and has all the functions needed for a facility with very high requirements for hygiene, quality and energy efficiency.
- Strict hygiene standards are crucial to us, in view of our guests’ situation. We also require our mixers to be environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, easy to use and easy to clean, explains Bodil Frölén, Operations Manager RMH Gothenburg.
FM Mattsson has been collaborating with Ronald McDonald House since it opened in 1999.
- We’re delighted to have a long-standing partnership with FM Mattsson. It’s wonderful that they can also help other Ronald McDonald Houses in Sweden. They make such a difference to our families, says Bodil.
