Project Description

The project consisted of the construction of a new two storey building of 2,500 m2 providing a range of new inpatient and outpatient adult Palliative Care services. The new Palliative Care Centre is a single storey and part two storey building. The construction included traditional strip foundations with load bearing masonry walls and pre-cast concrete floors. External walls were clad in a mixture of facing brickwork, insulated render and cedar boarding. The development is a centre of excellence being the first dedicated hospice facility for adults in Walsall. As a locally based contractor, we are extremely proud to have been involved in this project. The Care Centre was the first building in the UK to achieve a design stage ‘Excellent’ rating under the BREEAM Healthcare category.
