Murton Medical Centre

Health // Murton Medical Centre

IBA were commissioned to produce a design to refurbish and extend an existing medical centre to provide enhanced accommodation for a GP Practice to meet the demands of an increasing patient list and to provide accommodation for the PCT.

The extension works included the creation of 7 new consulting rooms, 5 new nursing clinical rooms, associated clinical spaces, a training and library facility and administration offices.

The refurbishment works commenced once the extension had been completed and included opening up the main entrance area by removing the bottom of the king post trusses to open up the roof space to create a lighter and more welcoming experience. Other works included the creation of Counselling, Chiropody, Dietician, Psychotherapy and Chiropractor spaces as well as staff welfare accommodation.

The project was procured under a third party developer agreement and was challenging given the sloping nature of the site. This allowed an additional storey to be created whilst maintaining the same roof level but resulted in extensive damp proofing and tanking works to protect the newly created Basement level.
