Ardenleigh reopens for troubled teenagers
Ardenleigh reopens for troubled teenagers
One of only six adolescent forensic psychiatry in-patient units in England has reopened its wards to young people with glowing praise for the project team who performed the £3.5m redevelopment.
Ardenleigh secure mental heath unit in Erdington, run by Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, has moved into the new, state-of-the-art building up to 18 young adults who are suffering from complex mental health problems.
As inpatients, they receive assessment and treatment of mental health issues – such as depression, bi-polar disorder, psychosis and schizophrenia – and many arrive with or acquire Autistic Spectrum diagnoses as well.
Ardenleigh houses some of the country's most mentally disturbed teenagers, who have been detained under the Mental Health Act and have usually committed a criminal offence, and was opened in 2003, so was due for upgrading.
At the re-opening, Simon Parkes, Capital Developments Manager for the Trust, said: ‘I want to thank the project team for all their efforts, not only over recent weeks, but for the duration of this project from day one. Numerous people, clinical and non-clinical, have commented upon the building regarding the high standard of finish and attention to detail.
‘The young people who move in today and in the future will receive the best quality care in an environment second to none, which is the most important outcome of all our efforts.’
Alongside the accommodation for troubled teenagers is their school, which has recently gained the status of a Certificate of Quality of Autism Provision, run by James Brindley School, which provides education at five hospitals across Birmingham, including Ardenleigh and the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
The redevelopment led by main contractor E Manton upgraded the decade-old unit on the same site, providing 18 ensuite bedrooms, lounges and dining rooms in three wards all separated by a central hub and staff rooms for ease of observation of wings. The wards are called Atlantic, Pacific and Adriatic to reflect a calming ocean theme.
Security was paramount given the nature of the young people on site, who might pose a significant risk to themselves or to others. High-security perimeter fencing expert Zaun was appointed to design and install the fencing solutions at a cost of £100,000.
They supplied almost 200m of their HiSec fencing in different heights, reflecting three different categories of security rating.
Internal fencing, and that surrounding a ball court and enclosing outdoor stairways, was just 2.4m or 3m high. But perimeter fences ran to 5.2m in height and were buried in a concrete sill for added security.
Zaun also installed aluminium sheeting on some of the boundary fencing to provide privacy to the inpatients and to prevent them from being distracted by events beyond the hospital.
Zaun’s HiSec uses the ‘358’ welded mesh to repel would-be intruders. The close 76.2 x 12.7mm mesh means that it is almost impossible to climb, and is very difficult to cut with anything other than power tools. Hence why the Home Office uses it for prison perimeters and other secure sites such as Ardenleigh.
It is also increasingly specified on schools, where pupil safety is paramount as good through visibility means staff can easily see what’s going on on the other side of the fence, but the mesh is so fine that items can not easily be passed through.
The Ardenleigh site also contains a unit for mentally ill women. Similar units in the region include Hatherton Centre in Stafford and Reaside Clinic in Rubery, both of which are for men only.
Haringey park overhaul is a slam dunk
Haringey park overhaul is a slam dunk
A Haringey park has re-asserted itself as a magnet for basketball players from across London since a £300,000 facelift, all funded from outside the London borough.
Ducketts Common near Turnpike Lane tube station boasts the finest basketball courts in the city, with spring-loaded hoops imported from the US for serious slam dunks, thanks to the park’s Friends Group, Groundwork London and the London Borough of Haringey.
The NBA selected Ducketts Common for their 2013 London summer 3on3 basketball tournament screened on Nickleodeon including a guest appearance by NBA star Atlanta Hawks centre-forward Al Horford.
Troy Tigers, the North London basketball team that has made Ducketts Common its home, followed that up with a repeat 3on3 tournament at Easter, alongside supporting partners Reach & Teach, London School of Basketball, Haringey Sports Development Trust and I Am Finest.
Haringey Open Space Programme Officer Martin Hall, himself a former professional basketball player, said: ‘This really is a triumph of local people mobilizing to get the facilities they want – and volunteering to keep them in tip-top condition thereafter.’
The Friends Group and one particular local resident raised £250,000 for the ball court improvements with designers Groundwork London and Haringey. Funders included the London Marathon Trust, Big Lottery Community Spaces, the London Mayor's 2012 Legacy Plan and Sport England's Places People Play.
Groundwork London consulted locally and with community groups to devise a Community Action Plan, which identifies the key features of the park including the layout, plants, trees and other vegetation, play areas, paths and entrances, and how to tend for them.
Already a well-known venue for outdoor basketball, and originally converted from rarely used tennis courts, it was decided to rebuild the now worn-out basketball courts and provide two full-sized quality basketball courts with US imported baskets with acrylic backboards, and an additional pair of practice hoops making six baskets to shoot at.
In the remaining space there is a 5-a-side football pitch, which can double for netball or volleyball, which was added to reduce the amount of footballs kicked on the nearby grass, which is close to a children’s playground and adjacent to a new gym.
Specialist sports surface contractor Blakedown performed the upgrade using Duo8 SuperRebound fencing from sports fencing manufacturer Zaun.
As well as the 3m high fencing to keep the balls within the play zone, Zaun has made especially for Ducketts Common a 30-metre stretch of 1.2m-high twin fencing with a steel plate cap on which spectators often sit.
Next to the courts is a 14-piece outdoor gym with 22 workout stations. Attention will now turn to fundraising for the final phase of improvements to the north end of the common where a plaza is proposed with seating and planting; a place to sit and relax.
Hall concluded: ‘We’ve been delighted with everything our contractors have done that has brought players flocking from all over London. In fact we’re so pleased, we’re planning a similar project in Finsbury Park which as well as the multi-use games area can also stage concerts
