This report is an independent desk-based technical review of the design and supporting specification for the proposed Challenging Behaviour Unit (CBU) on St Helena, focussing on compliance with building regulations and suitability of the proposals to meet the needs of the particular client group.
In general terms the proposals are considered to be basically sound for the purpose of the building(s) in respect of both health and safety and client group requirements. However, whilst the aim of this report is not to prompt a redesign of the facility, suggestions are made that can be considered by the commissioning body and management team for modifications and improvements should they be appropriate and if available funds allow.
This report has been produced by TKL Architects for Evidence on Demand with the assistance of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) contracted through the Climate, Environment, Infrastructure and Livelihoods Professional Evidence and Applied Knowledge Services (CEIL PEAKS) programme, jointly managed by HTSPE Limited and IMC Worldwide Limited.
