In partnership with Interserve Project Services Ltd. W R Dunn & Co prepared a successful Tender Bid submission for the refurbishment and alterations to the Healthcare Centre at HMP Dorchester.

The South West Dorset Primary Care Trust (PCT) and Prison Health identified Dorchester Healthcare as a major concern, with the existing facilities failing to meet clinical governance standards, or deliver an acceptable level of care. This project resolved these issues and provides a state-of-the-art health care facility for HMP Dorchester.

Health care facilities are provided over three levels with outpatient facilities located at level 1, inpatient facilities at level 2 and day care and administration facilities at level 3. The project also includes several alterations to ancillary accommodation, including upgrading some existing cells and the link to D-wing, which will include a platform lift so wheelchair users can access this house block.

Project Name: New Health Care Centre, Dorchester

WR Dunn & Co Team: Architect

Project Value: £5m
