Mental health centre for young people wins ‘New Build Project of the Year’ award

A mental health centre project that saw G&H Building Services deliver full design and build of mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) works has won a coveted industry award.

Red Kite View in Leeds won the ‘New Build Project of the Year’ category of The Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management Awards.

Red Kite View is a vitally important mental health inpatient facility that provides critical care in the community for young people aged between 13 and 18.

Built on the former St Mary’s Hospital site for Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, G&H Building Services was appointed by the main contractor, Tilbury Douglas.

The scope of works saw the design, build and installation of all MEP services for the 22-bed facility having incorporated the ideas and aspirations of clinicians and young people during the commissioning phase.

A key element of the specialist scheme is reducing the number of patients having to travel long distances for treatment.

Construction saw a multi-purpose activity room and educational facilities built along with a family visiting room, green communal space and courtyard to offer a place of safety for those in need of urgent help.

In addition to HVAC, underfloor heating and thermal insulation, G&H Building Services also delivered modifications and diversions of existing below-ground services and managed incoming water and gas supplies.

And as part of G&H Group’s integrated MEP approach, the Engineering Services division worked offsite to fabricate gas manifolds for boilers and large pipework for chillers. This not only sped up our work but also reduced the number of people working onsite which was crucial during the pandemic.
