IHP was awarded the major appointment to design and construct a new 154-bed low security mental health inpatient unit, with a gross internal floor area of 12,647m2.

Comprising Dementia, Advanced Care, Psychological Intensive Care Units and Adult Functional Wards, the Harbour was designed with extensive input from service users and clinicians and is based on good practice guidance and ‘safety by design’ to ensure the provision of high quality care.

The ethos of the unit is to provide therapeutic care which is empowering, person centred, needs led, and focuses on promoting recovery and independence.
