Project Overview

The UK’s first purpose built Autism Hospital. The facility not only needed to be a hospital but importantly a home. The design had to facilitate / accommodate some patients who were detained under the Mental Health Act, at risk of offending and experiencing mental health problems and or challenging behaviour.

Added Value

We were involved very early on in the design and as a consequence were able to ensure that the requirements of the applicable HTM’s were taken account of when addressed against the need for security and the brief for a homely self-contained environment. Similar conflicts due to occupants needs were identified early on with regards to access for all and sound insulation.
