Initially, the brief was to design a GP practice extension to accommodate 6 new treatment rooms , 14 new consulting rooms, a large waiting and reception area, pharmacy, office, utility and storage space, a staff room and accessible WC facilities.
Aesthetically, the design is contemporary and sympathetic to the existing building and local vernacular.
Moreover, the proposed layout improves movement and usability for patients and employees. The site layout enhances the existing parking layout and provides extra vehicle spaces with separate parking for GP use.
Technically, the proposed development includes internal alterations, refurbishment of existing facilities and improvements to parking facilities and landscaping.
The new GP practice extension is built with people in mind and is therefore therapeutic and efficient. Moreover, it will provide a sheltered and safe environment as well as a practical and user-friendly surgery.
