The project comprised a large extension to the front of the hospice and various internal alterations. The works also included the construction of a new teaching and dance room block within the confines of the campus.
Restrictive access provided for a challenging build as a result of the proximity of the new building to the existing one. Day to day activities were maintained without disruption by forming a temporary access route across the front gardens.
The new extension is used as a soft play area for the children and is a steel framed construction with brickwork and blockwork walls. A lift was also installed. The internal alterations were for the refurbishment of the existing wet area and other play facilities.
