The Scheme for St Modwen and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) accommodates 180 service personnel associated with the ‘Royal Centre for Defence Medicine’ (RCDM) who operate within the QE hospital, providing services for both the general public and also the rehabilitation and care for armed forces returning from active duty around the world.
This Residential scheme is about developing serviced residential accommodation for the staff of the RCDM, to give them a sense of identity away from the QE and a space where the Medics can recuperate from their day to day stress. The project includes all ranks Mess facilities, Bar area, Gym, office and Guards Site. Residential floors contain utility and common room spaces.
The approach has been to provide a contemporary response to the standard SLAM solution, located within a town centre urban environment.
