Surrey & Borders Partnership
Two Bridges NHS Community Hub
New multi-purpose facility combines specialist mental health services
Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s leading providers of health and social care services in Surrey and north east Hampshire for people of all ages with mental health and learning disabilities.
The trust needed to relocate services from their previous unit to the Two Bridges building in Chertsey. ITC helped transform this tired and vacant building, by carrying out Cat A and Cat B refurbishment works to create a multi-purpose facility to meet the needs of the local community.
Collaboration with client to meet their vision
The client had an ambitious vision to be delivered within budget. We offered value engineering to ensure the spaces met the needs of the client, and the team worked together to define a programme which was achievable.
Internal and external spaces reconfigured
The works began with a complete strip-out of the existing building. The project required a range of building services installations from ceilings, partitions, decorations and flooring to office spaces. Part of our solution included works to retain and reuse mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations which were assessed to have another 10 years of life remaining. Alterations were also carried out to the existing toilets.
A new fire alarm, security and access control systems, new lighting were also installed in all of these spaces. Externally, the team installed additional lighting columns, increased lighting for the car park and CCTV at the new entrance area to improve security.
The team carried also out substantial landscaping works including laying down an open mesh matting, line marking and root protection to allow a protected tree to grow healthily.
New and modern Community Hub
now ready for staff to move in
The ITC team were pleased to help Surrey and Borders modernise their newest Community Hub. The finished spaces provide new facilities including a reception, ground floor clinical rooms, 1st and 2nd floor office spaces, kitchen and welfare spaces, social spaces, comms room, store room, waiting area, toilets and disabled toilets.
The new centre will be used for community-based services and be home to non-clinical spaces for staff, research and development teams and many more.
“Working with ITC has been a real pleasure. The refurbishment works at our new multi-purpose facility have been delivered to the agreed standard in what was an extremely time sensitive programme. I would be happy to work with ITC again on future projects.”
