Cygnet Hospital Coventry is a new 56-bed mental health hospital. The hospital will offer specialist inpatient services for women across three wards, with step down facilities also forming part of the care pathway. The hospital marks Cygnet’s first service within the West Midlands. Engineers at BSP Consulting have undertaken the full structural design for the £9.8 million scheme.
Situated at the old St Mary’s School site on Landsdowne Street in Coventry, the health facility comprises of three principal wards, plus eight individual step-down flats together with therapeutic, clinical and recreational facilities, and ancillary/support accommodation. These have been set within a building floor plan totalling 4,427 square metres and constructed over three levels.
The large steel-framed building with composite decks and a mix of masonry and cladding outer leaf has been designed by BSP in Revit – linking the architect’s Revit files with BSP files.
“We have exported our models to the fabricator in IFC format for them to fabricate from,” said BSP BIM manager Dan Hinchley.
It is the latest in a number of healthcare projects that BSP has been involved in, which have included primary care centres across the UK.
“Cygnet Hospital Coventry is an excellent example of how BSP is using expertise in Revit to make the design and construction processes more streamlined and efficient,” added Dan.
Lee Hammon, Cygnet Health Care’s commercial director, said: “We are most excited about bringing a new hospital to the West Midlands’ region. It is an area where we have held strong and positive NHS relations for many years, and we are delighted to be able to offer these important NHS customers a more local service, to meet their commissioning needs.”
