Integrated Health Projects has signed off a £100m deal with Derbyshire Healthcare Trust to design and build two 54-bed mental health facilities.
The Vinci/McAlpine joint venture will build the new Adult Acute Care units at the Kingsway Hospital in Derby and in the grounds of Chesterfield Royal Hospital, the former also including a 14-bed Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit.
Both AAU facilities will provide single, en-suite rooms, replacing the current male facilities in Derby and Chesterfield which have dormitory accommodation, including green areas, therapy space and temperature-controlled rooms.
They will be equipped with modern facilities and additional resources including a shared therapy suite incorporating activities of daily living kitchen, indoor fitness room, online library resource room, arts room and access to a secured roof terrace/garden for wards on the first floor.
Ryder Architecture designed the units along with Curtins Consulting as the structural engineer and CAD 21 as building services designer.
The AAU works are to complete in the Summer of 2024.
