The Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership is sited on a 4.5-hectare plot in Bristol. The campus accommodated seven independent buildings that replaced the existing mental healthcare facilities at Barrow Hospital which had become outdated. The scheme provided a variety of psychiatric inpatient and rehabilitation facilities. Provisions for sport and community services were also incorporated into the design. A day-care hospital was designed to provide space for 127 care beds across 16 wards. Every ward has easy access to the central facilities at Callington Road.
Throughout the seven buildings, radiant panels were utilised to heat the individual spaces along with mechanical ventilation linked to space temperature sensors to create a comfortable environment for all patients. Lighting control systems were utilised to provide an efficient and well designed system, reducing energy consumption. The largest mental health PFI project in the UK, with a capital value of over £64 million.
