This 2,200m2 project consists of a new 32 bed 24 hour care unit and a 15 place day treatment department. The building benefits from excellent levels of natural ventilation and daylighting. A biomass pellet boiler was used as the main heat source and was carefully optimised to not only feed the new building but to link into a section of the existing hospital, considerably improving the systems payback period.
Our design also concentrated on the simplification of the controls system to minimise user interaction while maximising efficiency.
