Hellesdon Hospital, Norfolk

Hellesdon Hospital, Norfolk

This purpose built facilities include a 10 bed psychiatric intensive care unit and a further 12 bed low security support unit incorporating associated day spaces and facilities.

The single storey building is open and spacious providing a high quality environment to the patients.

Construction comprised of traditional load-bearing masonry with timber laminated framework as necessary to suit the large open spaces. Engineered piled foundations were required to suit the poor ground conditions encountered at the site. Our commission also included the design of the externals such as foul and surface water drainage systems and hard-standings. The site required a ground improvement solution before piling could commence.

J P Chick & Partners Ltd undertook the design of masonry and laminated timber framework and also the design of externals, including foul and surface water drainage.
