A place made for care – a focus on development with positive human outcomes.

Springfield has been a mental health hospital since 1840. However, new challenges require a new generation of facilities. Springfield will be dedicated to supporting the delivery of high quality, innovative care – a milestone in changing perceptions of mental health.

The site is complex, with access challenges, dependencies on land sales, and repurposing of buildings and land while maintaining services. We work hand-in-hand with the Trust, a partnership built on values of innovation, determination and patience.

Together, we are delivering a mixed-use master plan. This puts staff and patient well-being first, enables state-of-the-art care and connects the hospital to its surroundings and community - not hidden from view. It is the essence of development with positive human outcomes.
