Longton Primary Care Centre

Set to transform the delivery of healthcare services in Longton, we are leading the design and development of a new primary care centre in Stoke-on-Trent in conjunction with North Staffordshire Care and Commissioning Group and City of Stoke-on-Trent Council.

Challenge

A significant challenge was preparing the brownfield site for construction. As it was built in a former mineshaft, this involved overcoming poor ground conditions before any works could commence.

We worked with numerous stakeholders including Care and Commissioning Group (CCG), GP practices and business case writers to work through a complex process to coordinate and provide supporting information to achieve business case approval from the funder, NHS England.

The new health centre will replace two existing GP surgeries that currently have 12,000 patients. It was necessary to design the new site with future growth in mind, as well as optimising the design to ensure maximum operational and energy efficiency.

Solution

Coordinating the design, we ensured the building was fit to facilitate future growth and extensions by integrating this into the base build.

The traditional build care centre will be built to BREEAM excellent, creating a modern centre that is efficient and economical to run, allowing the NHS to direct their resources to focus on patient services.

To combat the poor ground conditions, we arranged the acquisition of a Coal Authority permit to treat the mineshaft required as part of the planning application. We managed the process of design development and procuring all supporting information into making a successful planning application through to consent.
