BSP Consulting engineers have undertaken the full civil and structural design for the scheme, which will feature three principal wards, plus eight individual step-down flats, together with therapeutic, clinical and recreational facilities, and ancillary/support accommodation. These will be set within a building floor plan totalling 5,300 square metres and constructed over three levels.

Director of BSP Consulting, Carl Hilton, said: "We are excited about being involved directly for the client on this hospital project as it is a sector in which we have significant strength and had indentified for expansion. The site is one of the first significant medical park developments to occur in the UK, and is therefore a high-profile development."

He continued: "It is the latest in a number of Cygnet healthcare projects that BSP has been involved in, and is an endorsement of the civil and structural engineering services that BSP provides."
