We are delighted to confirm that our Medium Secure Unit project, Rowan View has been shortlisted for the Design in Mental Health Awards.
The project was put forward in the Service User Engagement category and some of the criteria the project had to meet was;
Innovative and thoughtful engagement of service users.
To see evidence of the importance of involving service users in the design process and the need for the service user group to be centric to the project structure
Uniqueness of the work that has taken place within a mental health setting and what significant effect it has had on the design when involving service users
How you have “designed in” problem solving approaches when involving service users in the design process
The methodology of sharing and gathering of information
How it allows the service user group to identify what they think are important components of an effective healthcare setting and design vision of new builds and environments
The awards ceremony is taking place on the 21st May 2019 in Coventry.
