Existing surgery is transformed with new premises and local materials

The range of services offered by the practice meant it had outgrown its current premises. The doctors own their existing premises and there is a substantial area of the site available for development. The practice chose to take the third party developer route.

The new premises accommodate: three consulting rooms; three treatment rooms; associated utility and disposal facilities; administrative accommodation; a base and office facilities for the community nurses; as well as a large meeting room for holding health education sessions for the local community.

The new surgery also has space for minor operations and areas available for use by visiting health practitioners.

The facility is designed to meet users requirements and articulate the local aesthetic. The practice were keen to adopt local materials, thus the Cary stone was integrated into the scheme, together with a mix of contemporary materials. This has allowed the building to blend in with its surroundings, whilst presenting an appearance that reflects the modern clinical approach.
