Woodland View Opening

There will be a phased opening in May of the new £46m mental health and community hospital at Ayrshire Central, Irvine.  Woodland View will open ahead of schedule and on budget and is being hailed among the best facilities for mental health in Scotland.  The facility will be split into two wings with a focus on elderly patients on one side and acute patients on the other.

Hulley & Kirkwood were Services Designer to Balfour Beatty. The energy strategy for the building incorporates multiple combined heat and power plant and extensive use of natural ventilation to reduce carbon emissions and utility costs.

This new healthcare facility will help NHS Ayrshire & Arran with its long-term goal of shifting the balance of care from acute hospitals into more community based facilities.
