12:00pm Sunday 15th July 2012 in Latest News
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Royal United Hospital, Bath, has won a clutch of awards in this country and abroad.
The Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care, named after Malmesbury entrepreneur James Dyson, won a Royal Institute of British Architects national award for its design and RIBA client of the year award.
It is also received the innovation award and project of the year award from the Chartered Institute of Building at the South West Built Environment Awards and the regional project of the year award from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
The unit was also highly commended in two categories at the International Design in Health Awards at a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.
Howard Jones, director of estates and facilities at the RUH, said it was a “great honour” for the unit to be recognised by such organisations. The unit opened in 2011 and replaced a cramped intensive care unit for babies.
