Raised Floor Solutions is moving on site to commence the delivery of the steel decking contract for a £33m project on a 6.4 acre site at Maghull Health Park.
A new low secure unit (LSU) is under construction for Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust. The facility will provide world-class short to medium term care and a therapeutic environment for people with learning difficulties and/or autism who have largely been convicted of offences.
Forty individual en suite bedrooms will be provided within the new facility for both male and female patients. The aim of the hospital is to enable the “responsibility and independence of the individual while ensuring the protection of the public until they are ready to re-join society.”
The LSU will neighbour Rowan View medium secure unit and Ashworth High Secure Hospital creating a centre of excellence for learning disability and mental health care.
Working on behalf of the project’s Steel Contractor, Raised Floor Solutions will supply and install 1,363m2 of 1.2mm Kingspan Multideck MD60 steel decking for the construction of the new unit.
The contract is being fulfilled by Metal Deck, the steel decking contractor division within Raised Floor Solutions.
