Download Project Overview
The first phase in the master plan to modernize Scotland’s Royal Edinburgh Hospital campus involved the design of a new state-of-the-art mental health facility. Intense consultation with staff, patients and the public guided the NORR team in creating a therapeutic rehabilitation experience which promotes the health and well-being of users, delivering on its strategic objectives and, as important, breaking down the barriers around the stigma of mental health.
The redevelopment involved complex phasing on a live site environment; NORR worked collaboratively with the contactor and client to maintain the delivery of services from multiple buildings across the site. The 185-single healthcare bedroom facility accommodates adult acute mental health inpatients, intensive psychiatric care, the Robert Fergusson national brain injury unit and mental health assessment and treatment. Located at ground-level, these modern hospital wards are designed to have access to quality outdoor space. From a sustainability perspective, energy efficiency was maximized through smart demand driven controls. As a Hub project, it delivered value for money in quicker timescales, with the strength of partnership.
