The post-virus world sets immense challenges for every aspect of the healthcare estate, particularly in the creation of modern facilities which are fit-for purpose to accommodate the latest technology and practices.
Nowhere is this more acute than in the charitable sector, where funding has seen such a dramatic decline. Mura Mullan, Healthcare director at Newcastle-based JDDK Architects, explains how the practice works with one national provider to find solutions to location and budget challenges.
JDDK Architects and Sue Ryder have forged a close working relationship over the last decade, having collaborated closely since 2012. Together they have completed projects at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough, and Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre The Chantry in Ipswich, and have also undertaken options appraisals on various Sue Ryder properties across the UK. Sue Ryder provides palliative and neurological care across the UK in its hospices and specialist neurological care centres, as well as within clients’ homes.
JDDK Architects was established in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1986, and, from the outset, has developed an expertise in the design of specialist care buildings, having been involved in over 100 hospice and assisted living projects to date, many of which have received recognition through design awards.
