Contractor Mowlem is half way through a £20M design and construction contract to build a new adult mental health unit for Camden & Islington Mental Health & Social Care Trust in north London. Work involves design and construction of a new hospital wing and refurbishment of two existing blocks.

The project also includes a landmark spire which was lifted into place early last week. Work takes place next to a densely populated part of the capital, but the contractor has so far kept noise to a minimum and claims to have had no complaints from residents. Designs for the project also had to avoid obstructing views across London from nearby Waterlow Park, which is just up the hill.
