Safevent window chosen for two new mental health units in Derbyshire

We are pleased to announce that Britplas has been appointed to complete the window packages to two new mental health units in Derbyshire.

Working with Integrated Health Projects (IHP), the joint venture of Vinci Building and Sir Robert McAlpine, the new facilities are for adult acute care (AAU) and are located at the Kingsway Hospital in Derby and Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Britplas will be supplying their multi award-winning Safevent® Access windows, which provide optimum security and safety as well as allowing natural ventilation and light and a high degree of service user control, in addition to doors and curtain walling.

Commissioned by Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, each facility will have 54 single, en-suite rooms, replacing the current male facilities in Derby and Chesterfield which have dormitory accommodation. The Derby scheme includes a 14-bed psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Both projects are due on site this summer, with the facilities expected to open next year.
