Health and Wellbeing
We have developed a wide range of health and wellbeing projects in partnership with Local Health Boards specialist charities and private healthcare developers.
Many of these schemes are within existing estates and our project teams fully understand the sensitivities associated within these challenging locations.
Projects are highly serviced and require close coordination between fully integrated team members.

CARE & RESPITE CENTRE
St Davids Hospice Care
BREEAM: Very Good
This Secure by Design project creates 15 en-suite bedrooms, each room benefits from its own private terrace with large sliding glazed doors.
Each room has the flexibility to be heated and cooled by fan-coil units so the environment of the resident can be adjusted.
The central circulation and social space runs down the centre of two-wings, with high ceilings with daylight through continuous roof lighting.
The entrance lobbies are large open spaces which accommodate a ‘social-hub’ and café.
Low-energy fittings and plant reduce energy use and running costs.

Magstim and Neurosign products also cover the fields of neurology, neurophysiology, ENT (ear, nose and throat), orthopaedic and neurosurgery.
