A purpose designed and built 24 bed, specialist residential mental health service in Nottingham for men with complex mental health needs, challenging behaviours and personality disorders.
A full suite of PWP’s mechanical, electrical, fire and security services was developed specifically for this specialist facility in close co-operation with the client’s team. Special considerations were required in all aspects of the design in order to meet the Health Authority’s licensing requirements. These included all products and the design being designated as safe from both a security and life perspective.
Such specialist design issues included an anti-ligature design criteria that prevents a ligature from staying secure; therefore removing access to any method where self-harm can occur.
By careful and considered design PWP were able to ensure the building remains focused on maintaining a calm and secure atmosphere.
