Construction of the new building, opposite the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust’s existing centre, is due to begin later this year, following planning permission approval.
The facility will boast five wards, a gym, dedicated activity spaces and a community café, replacing the mental health inpatient wards at St Pancras Hospital which are ageing and no longer fit-for-purpose.
The Trust’s St Pancras Transformation Programme Director, Malcolm McFrederick, said: “Our aim is to develop a modern, therapeutic facility that supports wellbeing, recovery and enables staff to provide the best possible care. We are delighted that a contractor has now been appointed to turn year-long co-production discussions, into a reality.”
BAM secured the project through the Procure 22 framework.
