Site work starts for Broadmoor Hospital
Work on the £242 million redevelopment of Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire has started on site. The project is led by Kier Construction and includes 10 new wards providing accommodation for 210 patients within a new secure environment.
The design, led by Oxford Architects with LDA Design, includes a new entrance building, central facilities building, new gardens, recreation areas and extensive landscaping.
As part of the enabling works package for the project, a new energy centre and staff training facility have already been constructed.
Originally built in 1863, Broadmoor Hospital provides specialist mental-health care services within a high-security environment for male patients from London and the south of England.
