WREXHAM MAELOR ADULT MENTAL HEALTH UNIT


  • THE KEY CONCEPT FOR THE FACILITY WAS TO PROVIDE SINGLE BEDROOM ACCOMMODATION IN LIGHT, AIRY COMFORTABLE WARDS DESIGNED TO COMPLEMENT THE THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTIONS OF THE STAFF. THE FACILITY WAS DESIGNED TO ALLOW DISCRETE ENTRY AND ASSESSMENT WHILST STILL PROVIDING A SEPARATE BRIGHT AND WELCOMING ENTRANCE FOYER.
  • Part of the Welsh Estates Framework Programme, this 5,400 m2 project was a reprovision of mental health services previously housed in accommodation on the Wrexham Maelor Hospital main site, which was deemed no longer fit for purpose. The service provision for the scheme includes two 18 bed acute wards, an 8 bed Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit, an assessment suite, ECT Suite as well as substantial shared activity facilities and supporting accommodation.

    The concept for the ward areas was based around providing all bedrooms with views into landscaped garden areas whilst circulation to two rooms ringed a secure accessible courtyard. High proportions of glazing to single sided corridors ensure that staff could safely monitor clients without overtly supervising their movements.
