Graham wins mental health facility contract

Construction firm GRAHAM has been selected to develop a new state-of-the-art mental health facility on land owned by the Trust in Mossley Hill, Liverpool. The firm was selected by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Following a competitive tendering process overseen by Liverpool & Sefton Health Partnership, GRAHAM was chosen as the preferred construction partner due to its extensive experience in delivering numerous healthcare projects across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

Designed by architect Gilling Dod, the new inpatient facility will phase out traditional shared dormitory mental health wards to provide 80 single bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Throughout the hospital, there will be an emphasis on providing therapeutic spaces with light and airy environments as well as facilities for family visitation and multi-faith worship. Outside, there will be access for patients to spend time in garden areas.

“It’s a privilege to be named construction partner of this new, state-of-the-art facility for Liverpool, which has been beautifully designed by architect Gilling Dod to provide a modern and therapeutic environment that centres patient recuperation and recovery. We’re delighted to be partnering with Mersey Care NHS Hospital Trust, which is committed to improving inpatient and community services and setting higher standards in healthcare,” said Peter Reavey, GRAHAM Regional Director.

Plans for the new development were approved in 2022 and the former hospital buildings, which were deemed unfit for purpose, were demolished in February. Demolition experts recycled around 95 per cent of the salvage and buildings were crushed for re-use on site as future building fill materials for the new facility.
