Healthcare - Oakwood Adult Autism Unit




Previous Arrow Next Arrow





The Oakwood Adult Autism Unit provides long term specialist residential accommodation to adults with autistic spectrum disorder, who require 24 hour support.
 
The building features three self-contained apartments, en-suite bedrooms, communal areas and gardens, all specifically designed for people with autism and mental health needs. Rooms are arranged around an activity room and secure central courtyard, to provide more outside space within the care setting.
 
The BREEAM Excellent building employs timber frame construction, on a concrete sub-structure and floor, whilst the central courtyard facades are rendered and the external envelope is oak clad, to blend into its woodland setting. It’s a single storey development, for easy access, with double height ceilings, single ply membrane roof and an external steel spiral stair to access first floor level roof plant. Extensive soft landscaping was also undertaken.
 
We built Oakwood in the heart of the new Oakgrove housing development, with a shared site access and whilst maintaining a stringent interface.
 
Oakwood was highly commended in the Building Better Healthcare awards for Best Supported Living Development.
