The facility is be made up of four buildings designed to separate the different services offered, easing access for patients and relatives.

The hospice is 50% larger than the existing one and provides 18 fully en-suite 278 sq.ft rooms each with their own shower and pumped oxygen.

Works were made more complex due to an exceptionally high water table and included extensive piling mat, reinforced concrete ground bearing slab. Foul and storm water drainage and attenuation tank. Extensive external works and landscaping to provide peaceful and tranquil outside areas whilst complementing the existing environment.
