DJDeloitte wins Blackpool Hospital contract

Consultancy Drivers Jonas Deloitte has been appointed by Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust to project manage the new £45m inpatient mental health hospital.

Architects BDP have designed the new hospital and construction is due to begin next year at Whyndyke Farm, near Blackpool, subject to funding approval.

DJD was appointed via the Department of Health's ProCure21+ Framework. Ben Brookes, assistant director at Drivers Jonas Deloitte, said: "The specialist design of the hospital will promote positive mental well-being, and provide patients with the best possible environment in which to recover.

"The aim of the project is therefore not just to provide exemplar functional and flexible space for clinical and non-clinical uses, but also to deliver a building which actively contributes to the treatment of patients."
