Willmott Dixon Interiors delivers anti-ligature project at the Caludon Centre in the Midlands

Willmott Dixon Interiors is proud to have delivered the replacement of anti-ligature windows and doorsets to twelve wards at the Caludon Centre, the Mental Health Facility in Coventry, on behalf of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.

The Willmott Dixon Interiors Caludon Centre site team including Modassir Zaman, Nabeel Javed, Olivia Tame and Narissa Richardson.

The Trust provides a full range of expanding physical, mental health and learning disability services to children, young adults, adults and older adults at several sites across Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull.

The project, which was procured through the Procurement Hub Major Projects Framework, has delivered the upgrade of over 400 windows at the Caludon Centre.

Anti-ligature windows have been installed in acute intensive care wards and patient accessible areas and bedrooms, where they have been fitted with integral electronic blinds.

The new anti-ligature windows installed at the Caludon Centre in Coventry.

The products were supplied by Britpas and are constructed from robust thermally enhanced mild steel profiles, with stainless steel anti-ligature mesh specially secured in position. They have passed rigorous high security testing methods to ensure no patient can break in or out of a room, either by themselves or with weapons.

New windows provide natural light and ventilation which can be controlled by patients, and helps to maintain a safe, secure and anti-ligature environment to meet the requirements of the secure facility.

The success of the project owes much to the effectiveness of communication between the onsite team and ward manager, matrons and clinical staff. All works were carefully planned in advance to ensure minimal disruption and allow patients to reoccupy safe and clean spaces by agreed deadlines.
