The facility, which includes one vulnerable adult ward, one learning disability ward and three acute wards, required fenestration solutions to assist with the therapeutic environment within the building and also provide enhanced safety and security to all areas without aesthetic distractions, whilst allowing for optimum ‘safe’ natural ventilation.
Our product solutions included a combination of uPVC and aluminium windows as well as glazed doors. We also set up a sample bedroom on site and devised a bespoke anti-ligature pelmet for the windows.
Having been appointed as sole fenestration supplier in April 2013, the contract was completed in January 2014 with the new £40 million facility now in use.
When Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust commissioned Medicinq to design and build an 86 bed acute mental health inpatient unit on the site of the old Harperbury facility in Radlett, Britplas were the obvious fenestration partner for the project.
