Grandview Autism Unit takes form

Healthcare Architects, Medical Architecture reveal construction progress for Grandview Autism Unit

Healthcare Architects, Medical Architecture reveal construction progress view for the Grand Autism Unit.

The Grandview project in Caterham is well and truly out of the ground and forming an impressive space! The facility will provide living accommodation and support for autistic residents and staff who saw construction begin on site in March 2013.  Working closely with Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Jerram Falkus Construction we are delighted with the progress to date. The build is currently ahead of a tight schedule with the timber frame nearing completion and a standing seam roof about to provide it with some protection from the typically wet British summer. Most impressive at this stage is the central courtyard garden which will provide a secure tranquil retreat and focal point at the heart of the building.

We share the excitement of everyone involved in the design process, especially staff and residents, as we watch the design brief take physical form and become a light modern healthcare facility serving the complex needs of its sensitive residents.
