Built in a former mineshaft, the location of the facility presented a significant challenge to prepare the brownfield site for construction. 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 co-ordinate the complex process and provide supporting information to achieve business case approval from the funder, NHS England.
The new health centre replaces two existing GP surgeries that currently have 12,000 patients. The site was designed with future growth in mind, and we optimised the design to ensure maximum operational and energy efficiency.
By co-ordinating 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 is 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.
