Bamburgh clinic is a Northumberland Tyne & Wear NHS Foundation trust facility at St. Nicholas Hospital in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne. The building houses three units, two Medium Secure and one Personality Disorder catering for both male and female clients. The £30m project was completed on time and on budget via the NHS P21 procurement route with main contractors Laing O'Rourke, Architects MAAP and Structural Engineers ARUP.

Innovative design included anti vandal chilled beams, combined heat power and absorption chiller. With energy efficient lighting and lighting controls, inverter driven pumps and fans to the carbon footprint of the development was significantly lowered. One of the big challenges for the designers was incorporating these technologies without impacting or compromising the safety and comfort of the staff and clients.

The scheme is very successful and the environmental impact has had marked effects on the health improvements of the patients leading to interest from around the world.

The Bamburgh clinic is an awarding winning development achieving success in the North East Construction excellence and RIBA awards.
