£46m Irvine mental health facility unveiled
The IBI Group have unveiled a £46m mental health and community facility in Irvine, Ayrshire, following handover of the build by Balfour Beatty.

Woodland View offers a range of mental health services including rehabilitation, continuing care, addictions, forensics, and intensive psychiatric care and incorporates current best practice in the design of dementia care.

Design features include corridor seating areas overlooking outdoor landscape, ‘wander loops, customised signage and carefully selected colour, artwork and wayfinding to help stimulate the memories of patients.

Emma White, IBI project director said: “The hospital’s design works in harmony with NHS Ayrshire & Arran’s model of care.  The non-institutional design supports the service user journey to recovery; building confidence, offering choice and paving the way for their transition home and into the community.”

The 206 bed facility is also open to the local community.
