Integrated Health Projects (IHP) has been appointed to build the Pears Maudsley Centre for Children and Young People's Mental Health for the South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM).

The building will have 9,100 sqm of floor space spread over eight floors. Designed by IBI Group, a key design feature employs multiple external roof terraces with the tiered design enhancing natural light.

Work began on site in March 2021 under the ProCure21+ framework agreement and is due to complete in May 2023.
