A purpose built Primary Care Unit and Family Health Centre delivered under the Medway LIFT on a restricted site in the centre of Gillingham.

The building was planned within the cost parameters of the LIFT initiative in order to be financially viable, whilst meeting exacting energy targets with 10% renewables.

The building houses two doctors’ practices comprising nine consulting rooms, three treatment rooms and a minor operations suite on one floor. A further floor is given to general treatment facilities for specialist dental, podiatry, speech therapy, family planning and physiotherapy clinics.

Public waiting areas are sited centrally on each floor simplifying public access and placing the treatment and consulting rooms around the building perimeter so that they benefit from natural light and ventilation.

We needed to work to minimise the amount of mechanical cooling so we adopted a night time purge ventilation system for the consulting rooms.

We held regular workshops with the end users of the various departments so that they were completely aware of what mechanical and electrical services were being provided and we listened to and took on board any specific requirements they raised.
