GRAHAM LANDS £53 MILLION MENTAL HEALTH CENTRE IN LIVERPOOL


Graham has won the contract for a £53m mental health facility in Liverpool.


Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust appointed the contractor to build the facility in Mossley Hill, in the south of the city.


The new inpatient building will feature 80 single bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms instead of the shared dormitory style traditionally used in mental health facilities.


Plans for the new development were approved in 2022 and the former hospital buildings – which were deemed no longer fit for purpose – were demolished in February.


Salford-headquartered demolition contractor Connell Brothers carried out the work and recycled about 95 per cent of the salvage, with elements of the former buildings crushed for reuse on site as future building fill materials for the new facility.


Trust chief executive Joe Rafferty said: “Work is well under way at Mossley Hill so we can give the people of Liverpool what they need – the very best care in a modern, therapeutic environment with single ensuite facilities, and easy access to gardens and open space.


“Our current inpatient estate had been identified as a limiting factor in service users’ recovery. More than that, by delivering better buildings, we’re also setting newer and higher standards in mental healthcare for everyone.”


The new facility has been designed by architect Gilling Dod.
