SPECIALIST DESIGN AND BUILD CASE STUDY

The unit is equipped to cater for up to 12 young people in individual bedrooms with en suite facilities. The length of stay at Simmons House depends on the young person’s requirements and collaborative aims and goals. The facility is designed for young people to be admitted for anything from a few days to longer admission periods of up to 9 months.

Date: Completed November 2015

PROJECT CHALLENGES The works involved creating an extension to the second floor in order to create 2 additional new en-suite bedrooms for the facility whilst upgrading 2 existing rooms. The project works were carried out within shared areas of Simmons House so it was essential for strong communication throughout and extensive planning in order to ensure there was minimum impact for staff and residents.

Throughout the course of the project, it was necessary for Quest to make a number of difficult adjustments to work around developments that arose as a result of a neighbouring construction site which caused limited general access and flow to the works. The project was handed over to a high standard with a happy client, and the rooms being used the very next day after handover.
