Diving Disease Research Centre, Derriford, Plymouth

DDRC Healthcare is based on Plymouth Science Park in Plymouth and, as worldwide specialists in diving medicine, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and medical training, we have an enviable range of highly specialised staff, facilities and knowledge.

At the Plymouth headquarters, they operate a centre containing decompression chambers for the diving community and also offering hyperbaric services to the NHS.

Growing interest in the benefits of accelerated wound healing from hyperbaric treatment has attracted funding from the NHS and the University of Plymouth who have jointly sponsored a project to expand the service and explore new avenues of research.

ADG were appointed to lead the design team and provide full architectural services to deliver the project which incorporates a Siemens MRI scanner, a new chamber facility, motor room with treadmill and various treatment support spaces and training rooms.

Work on site was completed in 2021 with the MRI unit installed, and the existing centre remaining fully operational throughout the project.
