Kingfisher Court up for duo at Design in Mental Health Awards

Osborne is pleased to announce that its Kingfisher Court acute mental health facility for the Hertfordshire Partnership NHS University Foundation Trust has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Design in Mental Health Awards.

The £31million Kingfisher Court facilities, which were completed and occupied in November 2014, have been nominated in the Project of the Year and Service User Experience categories. Deputy PM Nick Clegg also used the buildings as his setting in August last year to announce his pledge to raise mental health research spending by 2020.

The Service User Experience accolade at the Design in Mental Health Awards recognises where customers and their needs are put at the heart of design process to create a facility which is truly beneficial for them.

Additionally, the title of Project of the year is awarded to a scheme which is visually interesting, sustainable and has demonstrated exceptional team-working and problem-solving.

The winners are set to be announced on Tuesday 19 May at a ceremony at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, as part of the Design in Mental Health Conference & Exhibition.
