Client: Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
This was another successful scheme delivered for the Trust following a great working relationship built over years of working together, with members of the healthcare team delivering numerous schemes. Mill Lodge was a refurb scheme of an existing elderly ward to become a new 17 bed CAMHs unit with High Dependency capacity, carried out under a JCT contract. The main objective for the client was timescale. The scheme had to be delivered on time as the service had to move into the new facility by a specific date. Despite the time and money constraints, the project was a success with the chairman of Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust referring to it as “a beacon for services elsewhere”.
Other work members’ of the healthcare team delivered for the Trust included the refurbishment of two acute wards, a mother and baby unit and a 136 unit, which were all delivered within the restriction of a Grade 1 listed building and were part of the live campus. Followed these projects, the refurbishment of a two ward Male Low Secure unit was carried out in a phased programme, as the Trust needed to keep some beds operational. The next scheme was the completion of the new build 22 bed Women’s Low Secure unit, which adjoined the male facility and provided a new front entrance for both units. All of the above schemes from the Trust’s capital programme were successfully delivered via the P21 and P21+ process using NEC 2 and NEC 3 contracts.
