ACA is thrilled to unveil the design for a new-build £6m Allam Diabetes Centre in Hull, on behalf of Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Hull City owner Dr Assem Allam donated £6m to Hull Hospitals to design and build a centre for the care and treatment of patients with diabetes and metabolic bone diseases. Furthermore, the new Diabetes Centre will reside within the grounds of Hull Royal Infirmary in front of the Women and Children’s Hospital.
The proposal seeks to remain as designated in the Hull Local Plan, creating a much more welcoming and positive environment for patients, visitors and staff. Moreover, it will replace the accommodation of the demolished Brocklehurst and Wilson buildings.
The Centre design aims to achieve a BREEAM “Very Good” rating with an aspiration for “Excellent” in certain areas. As a matter of fact, BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for buildings.
ACA’s design ensures that all users benefit from a close relationship with external landscaped areas. Therefore there will be a first-floor garden roof. This will also soften the impact of the building.
ACA has submitted the design for planning.
