The Oakwood Lane Medical Centre houses the merging of two GP practices in a deprived part of Leeds.
The new building represents a considerable upgrade in facilities and design from its predecessors, and the enlarged practice contains a pharmacy, atria, waiting rooms, consultation rooms, nurses quarters and expansion space for practice and community use.
The building comprises of 16,145 sq ft of space over two floors, featuring a modern, open plan layout. The works also included 48nr parking spaces, six of which were disabled spaces. The building consists of a steel frame with a brick and blockwork exterior. We used green glazed feature bricks, at the request of the client, which are coated with a high specification gloss that protects the depth and hue of the brick. We also installed a 140m³ surface water attenuation tank at the site.
We installed a flat roof consisting of composite panels, as well as 1,200 sq ft of photovoltaic tiles. This, combined with our landscaping and regular environmental checks, contributed to the building’s ‘Excellent’ BREEAM score of 78.75%. The project was completed within budget, on time, and to the client’s complete satisfaction.
Tolent commit to making a positive impact on the communities, the workforces and the environments that we engage with, and we received a score of 39/50 on the Considerate Constructor’s Scheme for the construction of Oakwood Lane Medical Centre
The Oakland Lane Medical Centre project involved the construction of a new build medical facility containing a pharmacy, atria, waiting rooms, consultation rooms, nurses quarters and expansion space for practice and community use.
