The $22million James Nash House is a state-of-the-art, 30 bed facility purpose built to ease pressure on the wider S.A. healthcare system and meet the Australian Government legislation that no patient requiring psychiatric support wait longer than 24 hours for a hospital bed. The new build is a forensic mental health unit, treating service users engaged within the justice system.
Aluminium windows were chosen so that window performance wouldn’t be affected by the extreme fluctuations in temperature in S.A., which is known to damage uPVC. Britplas were appointed to the project in October 2013, starting on site in May 2014 and completing the project to budget and on time in June 2014.

Building on previous successful projects throughout Australia, Britplas and its anti-ligature Safevent window were chosen for inclusion on South Australia (S.A.) Health’s new flagship mental health project. Designers were impressed by the innovative design and safety record, overlooking more locally based fenestration providers in order to provide the best possible facility.
