Major redevelopment providing 16 wards and 234 beds. The project will replace outdated buildings, originally built in 1860, with fit for purpose and safe facilities. This is one of the three high secure hospitals in the UK, and patients include some of the most challenging cases of psychiatric and mental problems in the country.
We developed the superstructure scheme for the three main hospital buildings which are similar in shape and size. A precast concrete solution was used, incorporating precast concrete cross walls and post tensioned concrete floors. Whilst there is a large amount of repetition the buildings are complex and detailing is involved.
