‘Treehouse’, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice, Ipswich
This project received high profile recognition in 2011, when HRH the Duchess of Cambridge officially opened the hospice.
The scheme is a new children’s hospice in the centre of a four acre woodland site. Treehouse, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH) supports families caring for children with life threatening illnesses. The new hospice is comprised of six children’s bedrooms, family accommodation, activity areas, therapy rooms, a staff wing and outdoor facilities. The design of this particular hospice has allowed a view of the trees from where ever you are within the building. Hence the name ‘Treehouse’.
Our commission included the design of the superstructure, foundations, drainage and hard standings. JPC CDM Services also acted as CDM Co-ordinator on this project.
JP Chick & Partners Ltd were extremely proud to be involved in such a worthwhile project as this.
