The Louise Hamilton Centre at the James Paget University Hospital (JPH) has won a hat-trick of awards for its quality of architecture in improving patient experience.

The palliative care centre was announced as the outright winner of the Open Award for Technical Excellence in Architectural Technology 2013 by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT).

Earlier this month, the centre was also highly commended in the patient experience class for best internal environment at the Building Better Healthcare national awards 2013.

And back in July, the centre won a Norfolk Association of Architects' award for outstanding craftsmanship.

This specifically recognised the exceptional quality of the building work delivered by the team on site.

The centre is operated by local charity Palliative Care East, and provides advice and support for those with cancer, heart disease and other progressive illnesses.
