The new Medium Secure Unit at Prestwich Hospital was designed specifically to assist with patients’ recovery and to create a comfortable and safe environment for all.
The £5m project started in November 2013 and included the extension of the existing unit to house an additional 25-bed supported living units as well as office space for staff.
The facility specialises in mental health and substance misuse services for people living within Greater Manchester.
FBS designed and made a range of furniture that is safe and practical with anti-ligature features and hard wearing, rugged materials. The bedrooms were furnished with fitted bed bases, wardrobes and desks, all made in heavy duty MDF with wood grain finishes. We furnished the social areas, providing upholstered built in seating for the communal areas and corridors and several secure TV units. Our package also included the numerous staff areas; offices, clinic, utility and meeting rooms.
