After receiving government approval, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust has signed contracts for the delivery of the Springfield University Hospital development with Springfield and Tolworth Estate Partnership, a 50/50 partnership between Sir Robert McAlpine Capital Ventures Ltd and Kajima Partnerships. STEP will act as master developer for the site with Sir Robert McAlpine as main contractor for the new mental health units and the park, surrounding public realm and infrastructure.

This GBP 150 million development will see the construction of two new mental health facilities set to open in 2022 on its largest site in Tooting, south London. This includes eight new inpatient wards which will be further boosted by the modernisation of the Trust’s community services. SWLSTG has already started construction work on this programme, which will include new housing and a 32-acre public park (the first of its kind since the 2012 London Olympics).

This huge milestone in the Trust’s Estate Modernisation Programme marks a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the way the SWLSTG delivers mental health services for 1.1m south west Londoners.The plans will bring forward a range of benefits to the people who use the Trust’s services, their carers and the local community, including:
World class mental health facilities: delivering the best care for patients
839 brand new homes: providing housing for local families in Tooting
A 32-acre public park: providing excellent outdoor space including a gym and play areas for our local community
Community shops and a café: for local residents to meet and relax
Extensive community healthcare: treating people closer to their families and their home
District heating system and centralised energy centre: providing efficient heating and reducing carbon emissions
Land to be made available for a new school: investing in our children’s future
More than £5million for new transport facilities: boosting transport links for local residents
