The Harbour, Blackpool
A major new Mental Health Hospital facility on the outskirts of Blackpool.
The project provides 152 bed units with support facilities catering for various complex needs.
The largely single storey accommodation uses a combination of structural steel framing and loadbearing masonry construction. The original sloping greenfield site underwent a major earth works cut and fill exercise to provide a level site to accommodate the building and external roads and car parking.
Works involved major drainage and infrastructure to provide a highly sustainable drainage solution minimising the impact of the scheme on the local environment.
