£8.5m Dorothy Pattison Older Adults Inpatient Facility, West Midlands
Client: Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Kier Construction
Role: Adviser to Principal Designer
The new Older Adults Inpatient Facility building is to provide state-of-the-art facilities at Dorothy Pattison Hospital, Walsall. The single storey building will create a new, modern, dementia compliant 25 bed unit.
As well, the older adult wards construction will necessitate new ward entrance arrangements and additional car parking facilities. The site is made up of vacant land and existing tarmacadam car parking spaces, along with a vacant former Renal Unit for the Hospital, which is to be demolished to allow the construction of the new facility.
