About the project
Naomi House and jacksplace provide hospice care for children and young adults in purpose-built but separate facilities on the outskirts of Sutton Scotney. These buildings provide residential accommodation for respite and end of life care, together with associated admin and support facilities.
A new entrance, hub, kitchen and dining facilities were created as part of the works. The new entrance wing also provides a logical point from which to connect to Jacksplace via a new bridge link. Within the existing Naomi House building, existing bedrooms are enlarged and ancillary spaces reconfigured to better suit working practices. Work on site completed in October 2015, with a total cost of approx £4m.
