From beginning to end, Duncan Stuart Todd was able to take our vision for a state-of-the-art workspace and articulate it into a care center that out entire staff is proud to serve our families out of. Even our contractor, who was unfamiliar with prep room construction, was impressed with how easy it was to follow the drawings and plans that Duncan Stuart Todd provided.

I especially liked working with Duncan Todd on space planning. As a result, we found that there are now few unnecessary steps in our work flow. We take two steps, and there are our instruments, two steps the other way and there is the water control unit. It’s a breeze for the operator. Fewer steps mean less stress, we save time, we’re more efficient and with the PrepArm and PrepAir ventilating system, we are always safe and comfortable.

The air quality is wonderful. And now, only a few months into using it, it is obvious that the system keeps pace with our needs and is the best part of our upgrading. More importantly the staff likes it and finds the room comfortable to work in. It is nice, clean and doesn’t look depressing. The entire experience was money well spent.
We wanted an easy and comfortable place for our staff to work. Good working conditions are a priority. The equipment is user friendly. We like the aspirator. The lift is very good and we have never regretted its purchase. It is beneficial to everyone.

We have a nice environment to work in now. We can stand in one place and move only minimally to access all of our equipment. Throughout the initial planning, our biggest concern was ventilation. The PrepAir HVAC System we installed has been a godsend and total life saver. We test and monitor formaldehyde levels and find that they have been reduced by 50%.

The bottom line is that the health and well-being of my employees is of the utmost importance to me.
A separate room where the embalmer can shower and change clothes helps move us into the 21st century. A godsend is the overhead lift that allows a body to be moved from the embalming table to dressing to casketing and protects the embalmer from injuries that often result from heavy lifting.

Working from our flagship New London site and now handling approximately 300 calls per year, we experienced the stress of working from a single station preparation room. We had one work station with a slop sink that required constant cleaning. Our new prep room has two work stations, each equipped with the Todd Morgue Table Receptor, which is a totally enclosed waste water removal system that… Read more “Cline & Hanson Funeral Home”

I am a licensed funeral director and embalmer. From 2000 to 2010, I served families in 9 locations in several states. With the exception of a few prep labs, I can say that none of those rooms had proper ventilation. Some had jerry-rigged bathroom exhaust fans! I could go on about the other prep rooms.
