Project Description

Conversion of existing patient flat into a new seclusion suite and de-escalation room and conversion of existing bulk store into a new activity room.


Working within a live mental health facility daily liaison was required with the ward managers to ensure that our activities could be carried out with minimum disruption.

The clients were particularly sensitive to noise so all efforts were taken to reduce the noise levels.

Works were planned so that the clients’ staff were aware of what shifts we would be carrying out noisy works such as demolition and make appropriate arrangements.

All of the products and construction techniques used were very robust and anti-ligature to meet the clients demands.
