Steelwork starts on Manchester NHS mental health unit

Posted on by in News

A major milestone has been reached as the erection of the steel frame on Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust’s (GMMH) latest mental health unit has commenced.

Once completed, the unit, known as North View, will house a purpose-built Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), eight adult acute wards and a treatment suite. The new development will see significant improvements to patient experience, with spacious single bedrooms, each with a private en-suite shower room, as well as a variety of indoor activity areas, meeting rooms for family visiting, multiple gardens, spaces for therapeutic artwork and a café.

IHP, a joint venture between Vinci Building and Sir Robert McAlpine has been appointed to build the state-of-the art development.

Leach Structural Steelwork is fabricating, supplying and erecting 1,100t of steelwork for the project.

Work on North View started in August 2022 with the new unit anticipated to be built and operational in 2024.
