BSkyB Health and Fitness

BSkyB Health and Fitness

The Sky Health and Fitness Centre building was designed to rehouse an oversubscribed gym that had been operational for over 14 years, as well as providing other new fitness facilities - underpinning Sky's commitment to the health and wellbeing of their staff. Positioned opposite a large landscaped plaza, the building takes advantage of the views across the panorama to Boston Manor and beyond. The X-LAM Alliance were appointed to provide a hybrid structure comprising glulam columns and beams together with cross laminated timber perimeter walls and floors, with visible grade timber specified for the internal exposed structural walls.


 
Little Miracles, The Spinney

Little Miracles, The Spinney

Created in 1972, The Spinney, a centre in which the Local Community Association could run a play scheme, was founded by Peterborough Development Corporation and the City Council. The building was threatened with closure on numerous occasions but the local community fought hard to keep it open. Sadly, in the summer of 2013 the council made the decision to close the centre, leaving the parents and children without this widely used and much loved centre. However, faith was not lost and local residents, Little Miracles and the Scouts Association decided to create a new management community with the aim to save The Spinney. The community’s hopes were lifted by the BBC show DIY SOS and amazingly the project was accepted to be involved in a programme with aim of engaging with businesses to build a brand new centre built.


 
NHS Langdon Hospital, Dawlish

NHS Langdon Hospital, Dawlish

The original project design was a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) new-build, officially approved with a budget of £45 million. The Devon Partnership NHS Foundation Trust felt this was unaffordable and instead used a Procure21+ contract funding process to bring the entire project within the budget constraints of £27 million. This included the replacement of the existing regional medium-secure unit, the Butler Clinic, with a new medium-secure facility to hold 60 beds, divided into four ward areas.

The majority of the original hospital site was built in the 1930’s and had been in need of either renovation or replacement for a long period of time. The site houses the Trust’s forensic service which provides care and treatment for patients with a wide variety of mental health and learning disability needs. Langdon Hospital offers services for people from Devon and Cornwall as well as other surrounding areas. The unit was designed to offer a ‘last stop’ for mental health patients prior to entry back into the community.

Toryglen Nursing Home
