Constructing Excellence in Wales - Value Award 2014

Combining our expertise in Evidence Based and Eco Efficient design, our BREEAM Excellent facility provides ‘healthcare without the institution’ and improves care for elderly and mentally ill members of the local community. The building is specifically designed to enhance natural ventilation and light penetration without overheating. Our design focuses on three 20-bed wards with a main shared core. Each ward has a separate entrance and is divided into two for gender segregation and patient type. The shape of the building combines the technical model of care with a healing aesthetic, maximising patient experience and improving treatment outcomes.
