Last month over 100 service users moved into a new purpose-designed and built modern mental healthcare centre, The Redwoods Centre, near the 'old' Shelton Hospital on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, a new 46 million sterling pounds facility for adults with acute mental healthcare needs and organic (brain impairment) mental health conditions. It has been designed and built under ProCure21 by BAM Construction. HEJ editor, Jonathan Baillie, visited the new facility, plans for which were first mooted in 1956, to discover from project director, Andrew Hughes, why it was so badly needed, and discuss its design and construction with BAM Construction's construction manager, Dave Ellis. An architectural standpoint is provided by project associate at Nightingale Associates, Anthony Keats.
