I shouldn’t feel worse after leaving the psychiatric hospital. Yes, I’m “Mental”, you don’t have to make me live it!

‘Guidance Led Testing of Products in the Mental Health Environment’

Sean Taylor, Consultant, BRE

This presentation will explore the process for product testing from our initial conversations through testing to a completed test report and the certification scheme being built off the back of this. This will include a deep dive into the three main segments of testing from the informed choices guidance — reduced ligature, robustness, and anti-barricade, giving you an inside view of our process to assist with preparing samples to achieve a representative result and how this translates to a test report. Furthermore, it will outline the latest information from the upcoming certification scheme.

‘Heathlands Integrated Health and Care Home’

Maarit Heinonen-Smith, Retirement Living & Senior Care Lead, IBI Group

The Heathlands Integrated Health and Care Home – a new care home for people with dementia and an intermediate care unit to prevent prolonged stay at the hospital was recently opened in Bracknell, Berkshire. It is the result of a five-year Joint Commissioning Strategy between Bracknell Forest Council, Frimley CCG and Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust.

IBI Group led on all aspects of the design, providing architecture, landscape, and interior design services to deliver a 66-bed facility.  

The design of the building is based upon the idea of a sensory journey, with a variety of colours and textures used for stimulating a particular sense such as sight, touch, smell or hearing.

The landscape architecture follows the same guidelines of inclusivity, bringing residents closer to nature.
