Topping-out of £27m Dewnans Centre
The ‘topping-out’ ceremony at Devon Partnership NHS Trust’s £27m Dewnans Centre was conducted at Langdon Hospital today.
Staff, contractors, commissioners and other stakeholders gathered at the new
medium-level secure unit to celebrate the success of the project and to witness the Trust’s Chairman, Mark Taylor, planting a yew tree at the front entrance of the building.
The construction project, being delivered by contractor Interserve and employing a 150 strong workforce at the peak of construction, remains on schedule and within budget, with the 60 bed Dewnans Centre expected to open next spring.

Jim Masters, the Trust’s Project Director, said: “Every aspect of the development has gone according to plan and we have worked extremely closely with the contractor, Interserve. It has been fantastic to see the new facility taking shape over recent months. When it is completed, we will have a state-of-the-art facility that we believe will be the best of its kind anywhere in the country. It will provide a safe, modern and therapeutic environment for everyone using the facility and for those staff who will be working there. There will be many new employment opportunities for local people and we are hoping to attract nurses and other professionals to join our team here at Langdon.”
Martin Payne, Senior Project Manager for Interserve said: “There has been a real benefit for all in working in such an open, supportive and collaborative environment where the design team, sub–contractors and the client have been aware of each other’s needs and considerate to their constraints. This has allowed the project to proceed within the initial programme and costs, but also to absorb the inevitable changes along the way.”
