Procured through the ProCure21 Framework, BAM provided a new Mental Health Respite Care Centre by refurbishment and extension of the existing 1960s facility and car park in response to the planning constraints for the site. The aim was to provide a facility with a modern working environment including offices, care for patients with severe learning difficulties, sensory rooms and independent living quarters.
While providing treatment services the 12 bedrooms are also designed to be ‘homely’ to ensure that patients are at ease with their surroundings. The facility has ancillary accommodation providing lounge, dining, exercise and office accommodation for patients. The respite facility ‘Monkton Hall’, a grade two listed building, was refurbished to provide office accommodation required from the previous use of the respite centre.
