We demolished, refurbished and reconfigured Lanarkshire State Hospital’s 1,500sqm of existing buildings to create a new 19,000sqm facility.
This transformation included mechanical, electrical, voice and data installations.
We completed the project in three phases, in consideration of patients’ and employees’ needs. This approach enabled the hospital to operate with minimal disruption during the redevelopment work.
The hospital manages the security requirements for its patients. For this reason, its range of facilities – therapeutic, vocational, social and physical – is housed within the perimeter fence.
The project delivered significant landscaping throughout the 60-acre site. This improved the environment for staff members and residents. This solution works perfectly for a facility that provides care for very ill, detained patients. It also protects them, the public and the staff from harm.
The principal aim is to rehabilitate patients to enable safe transfer to other secure facilities to complete their treatment. One of just four high-security hospitals in the UK, it serves Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Market segment: Hospitals, Custodial
Benefits for the communityThe State Hospital provides care and treatment for patients with mental disorders who cannot be cared for in any other setting. The patients do not have access to other services or communities and therefore the hospital must address all of their needs (therapeutic, vocational, social and physical) via a range of facilities within the perimeter fence.
