The new Adult Psychiatric Unit is considered a landmark scheme by Heron Bros. Ltd.
The scheme was won as part of a three stage performance related partnering scheme for Northern Ireland Health Estates.
Construction of the 78 bed unit commenced with an advanced ground works package involving lime ground stabilisation. Due to the curved geometry of the building the scheme involved extensive mechanical and electrical co-ordination from our supply team and bespoke fitted bedroom and clinical furniture was tailored to each individual room.
The scheme included a day hospital, facilities wing, therapy and support wing and four bedroom blocks.
CAPU was winner of the “Building Better Healthcare Awards – Best Mental Health Unit Design” UK Civic Trust Award 2009; the RIBA Exhibition Award 2009; the International Design & Health Award 2009; and was finalist at the CEF Specify Construction Excellence Awards in October 2008.
