Sid Watkins Building

Key facts & challenges

Short Description
The Walton Centre NHS Trust embarked on a major expansion programme to deliver a new three-storey building: Sid Watkins Building. The new building houses an expanded 30 bed specialised rehabilitation centre, outpatient department, UK-leading pain management programme, education and training department, corporate offices and relatives overnight stay accommodation. The design brief was to focus on making the patient feel like they have entered a luxury hotel rather than a hospital, but as a healthcare facility the partitions need to meet extraordinary acoustic, fire, impact and hygiene demands.
