Barratt Homes has engaged Rund Partnership as Employer’s Agent on The Pavilions, set in the grounds of the former Moorgreen Hospital in Southampton. The scheme includes the new build development of 121 residential units, including three and four-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments. 30% of the new-build homes will be affordable.
The portion of the site being redeveloped was previously transferred from the National Health Service to the Homes and Community Agency in April 2014. The empty buildings and vacant land placed an unnecessary burden on funding according to the NHS, with sufficient land capacity within the 5.6 hectares of the wider site to remain for healthcare use.
A key part of the development includes the sensitive refurbishment of the locally listed workhouse and gatehouses. The main Victorian building opened in 1848 as South Stoneham Union Workhouse, and was re-appropriated as Moorgreen Hospital in 1948. This historic building is being retained, refurbished and converted into 17 new apartments.
