Redevelopment work starts on Broadmoor

Work on Broadmoor hospital’s £242m redevelopment has begun, the NHS has announced.

The work includes 10 new wards and accommodation for 210 patients, new gardens, recreation areas and extensive landscaping.

Kier Construction is leading the redevelopment, which received planning permission in 2012, alongside LDA Design and Balfour Beatty.

“It is great news that the main redevelopment has officially started,” says Mike Foster, project director at LDA Design.

“We are looking forward to continuing our work with West London Mental Health NHS Trust and the construction team over the next few years to deliver an exemplar environment at Broadmoor Hospital to support its excellent mental health care.”

David Phillips, redevelopment programme manager, adds: "Achieving Department of Health full business case approval, then celebrating the cutting of the sod ceremony just one month later on a build of this scale, shows what an important project this is and just how well the trust and its partners operate together.

“I'm looking forward to continuing this relationship with LDA Design and making sure we deliver the benefits and type of environment our patients and staff really need and deserve.”

Broadmoor was originally built in 1863 and is one of three secure hospitals in England.
