Refurbishment and extension of a steel framed textile factory to house a surgery with 15 GPs

The refurbished building at the rear of the site houses the principal clinical accommodation while the extension contains waiting areas, circulation spaces and a bright reception.

The facilities include consulting rooms for 15 GPs and a minor surgery clinic along with three waiting areas. In addition an office for the district primary care service, a community kitchen, a multi-purpose community room, seminar rooms, a library/resource room and a staff lounge and kitchen with a sun terrace are all housed within the four-storey building.

On the street side of the scheme the façade of the extension uses Parklex solar control vertical fins providing a degree of patient privacy whilst reducing heat gain on the west-facing façade.

The surgery contains a range of sustainable features including photovoltaic panels and solar thermal panels high performance windows and and rainwater harvesting.
