Priscilla Bacon Lodge has provided vital end-of-life care for cancer patients and their families for over 40 years from their Colman Road site in Norwich.
We are delighted to see the recent opening of their new state-of-the-art palliative care unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, which will provide much-needed care for people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses.
We provided Civil and Structural support on the project following a carefully considered option appraisal of various construction methods and materials. The final scheme adopted a hybrid design.
The daycare centre and well-being unit comprise a two-storey steel structure with precast concrete upper floor. The linked inpatient unit is a traditional loadbearing masonry single storey wing with a gangnailed trussed rafter roof.
The project has been a real community effort over the four years, with a fundraising target of £12.5M to complete the construction. The facility is located within a landscaped setting adjacent to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital campus and provides accommodation for 24 inpatient beds, daycare facilities, a wellness centre, and a physio studio.
