BDP, the international architectural, design, engineering and urbanist practice has announced that formal planning approval has been granted for the new Catterick Integrated Care Campus, in Yorkshire, bringing construction of a brand-new health and care facility for Richmondshire a step closer.
This joint venture between the National Health Service (NHS) and Ministry of Defence (MOD) will provide a range of healthcare services for Armed Forces personnel and their families based at Catterick Garrison and residents of the wider Richmondshire area.
BDP says that subject to final clinical modelling, the purpose-build centre on the Garrison will feature primary care, advanced primary care, mental health services, physiotherapy, NHS dentistry for children and adults with a disability and voluntary and community healthcare support providers under one roof.
BDP was appointed as part of the Tilbury Douglas team to deliver the detailed design phase of the construction of the new Catterick Integrated Care Campus and to bring the project to planning application.
David Staniland, Town Planner at BDP, said:
'This complex planning application required careful consideration of a number of technical constraints to development and due time and effort to address all statutory and stakeholder comments. The hard work and effort that went into the pre-application discussions and negotiations with Richmondshire officers ensured that the process was incredibly smooth, and we are delighted to have reached this critical milestone. We look forward to continuing to work with our architect colleagues, the technical team, the client team and Tilbury Douglas to take the design through to construction and completion.'
Mihalis Walsh, Architect Director at BDP, added:
'This is an innovative, multi-service, primary healthcare facility bringing together the MoD and NHS and we are incredibly proud to be involved in leading the design team. We are delighted to have reached planning approval and we are excited about witnessing the benefits this building will bring to the local community.'
Wendy Balmain, North Yorkshire Place Director for the NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (HNYICB) said:
'The NHS and MOD have been working together since 2015 worked to turn the vision for an integrated health and care campus for military and local civilian populations into reality. The formal planning approval is a major milestone, moving us forward with finalising our service proposals and achieving final approvals. I would like to thank all our partners for this significant collective achievement that in time will support the needs of the local community.'
