Housing two medical practices, a pharmacy, and ancillary accommodation, Crossgates Medical Centre in Leeds exploits the co-location of the practices to assist in an efficient use of space; whilst allowing each practice a separate identity and zonal autonomy from each other.
The project comprised the design and build of the 3-storey medical centre on the site of a disused petrol station. Our scope of works involved partial site remediation before the construction of the steel frame structure with a brick clad façade with undercroft car park. The incorporation of additional ‘shell’ accommodation on the ground floor as well as simple modular room configuration of clinical space to allow easy adaptation to respond to different service requirements in the future.
The new medical facility features open plan waiting areas and atria, consultation rooms and a pharmacy, as well as room to expand for the inclusion of a dental surgery and physiotherapy facilities. The building was built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard, and consisted of two main sections with 45-degree pitch roofs, featuring a total of 1,076 sq ft of photovoltaic tiles, adjoined by a smaller section with a flat roof.
The project was on time and within budget and to the client’s complete satisfaction.
