The landscaping involved the planting of 22 new semi mature trees with underground anchor systems, a wild flower meadow and extensive herbaceous and shrub planting.
ORTUS, home of Maudsley Learning is a 1,550 sq m pavilion housing learning and event facilities, cafe and garden areas in the London borough of Southwark. The central focus of this unique project, initially coined ‘Project Learning Potential’, is to create a totally immersive learning environment generating a series of interconnecting spaces to encourage intuitive learning activities.
The building is now home to Maudsley Learning, a Community Interest Company. It’s vision is to raise knowledge and awareness of mental health and wellbeing which it intends to achieve through the building, through the development of a virtual learning environment and the creation of learning events focusing on mental health and wellbeing across a broad audience.
The building and garden was delivered through a PPC 2000 Partnering project, tailored for Construction Management procurement. It was delivered on time and on budget. As a highly sustainable building it is designed to BREEAM excellent standard. It also won a national RIBA award in 2015.
5 years on and still looking good.
