A car park, office and retail building to the north of Plymouth, adjacent to a hospital

The project is the first phase of the 6.5ha North West Quadrant. This is a mixed-use development integrating the future healthcare needs for the adjacent Derriford Hospital with residential and retail.

The brief was to reduce hospital parking across the site to release further land for development; improve patients’ and staff’s arrival experience with a visitor hub – services, amenities and secure parking – for the 11,000 staff, patients and visitors that use the hospital daily.
