Key Features

  • HTM Specification
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Significant use of local labour

£4.5m community mental health facility, providing 28 acute bed spaces over two wards, for the Doncaster & South Humber Healthcare NHS Trust.

An innovative wind catcher system was used in lounge areas to increase levels of natural light and ventilation, and provide energy savings to the building. Standardisation of materials and consideration of whole life costs also helped to reduce the environmental impact of the construction.

A large proportion of direct labour was employed, and the majority of the supply chain came from the North Lincolnshire area, ensuring maximum investment in the local economy.

The building was of traditional construction, with a raft foundation, masonry and curtain walling, slate and zinc roofing.

"A proficiently planned site operation."
