summerlands hospital

This project is to upgrade some of the existing bedrooms to provide en-suite facilities and safer services (anti ligature fittings and fixtures)

These works were carried out whilst the hospital was open. Consequently, works had to be programmed so as not to disturb the normal running of the hospital or to cause disturbance to patients.

Rowan Ward is an in-patient ward for adults with acute mental health issues.

Magnolia Ward is an inpatient ward for senior citizens with acute mental health issues and/or dementia.


We have acted as CDMC for The Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust on refurbishment works and upgrades to provide single sex accommodation to a number of other acute mental health units in:

  • Wells at Priory Park Hospital on St Andrews Ward
  • Bridgwater at the Wyvern Court

All of these require extra consideration to be given to the patients of these units and their potential vulnerability as well as to the staff and visitors.

We are presently acting as Principal Designer on other works to Rowan Ward

We have also just been appointed by Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to act as Principal Designer on a new project regarding the upgrading of Chard Community Hospital which is hoped to start 2016/17
