Hospital comprised of a series of two-storey pavilions designed to maximise natural daylight, ventilation and views

The departments are arranged around a central two storey hub, designed to simplify patient wayfinding and ease staff flow. The hub is the main communication space as well as a meeting place for patients and staff.

The hub has a galleried upper floor with roof lights and full height curtain walling. At the upper level there is a café with views to the town and St Andrews’ Bay. The design ensures close adjacency of services supporting integration.

Functional areas are interconnected by the diagnostic and treatment area, accessed by all groups. Expansion space has been provided within the building envelope, and opportunities for further growth have been identified. Generic room layouts allow multi-discipline use.

In-patient accommodation is on one level with access to secure gardens. Health-related meetings can be conducted within community meeting rooms.

The design includes ground source heat pumps, high efficiency heat recovery, micro combined heat and power plant and automated lighting controls.
