ISG has secured a circa £3.5 million project with
Dr David Brown & Partners to build King’s Medical Centre, a new
health centre in Normanton, situated between Wakefield and
Castleford in West Yorkshire. The part three-storey, steel frame
building occupies a key site within the town centre and replaces an
existing facility which has no further scope for expansion.
Designed to exploit its sloping site, the King’s Medical Centre features a dentist and PCT facility, with district nurse accommodation and consulting rooms on the lower ground floor. At ground floor level, the contractor will create a spacious reception and waiting room area, as well as a range of GP consulting rooms, minor surgery suites, treatment and community rooms, and a large pharmacy facility.
The first floor predominantly houses administrative offices, with flexible meeting rooms incorporating moveable partition walls, an archive/filing room and staff common room. Externally, the building will feature a range of finishes to its façade including brick, rain screen cladding, metal cladding and curtain walling. ISG Totty will also form an under croft car park at the rear of the building and carry out a range of hard and soft landscaping finishes across the site. The project is due to commence early in the New Year, with completion scheduled for November 2008.
John Gittins, regional managing director of ISG Totty, commented: "The new King’s Medical Centre will provide purpose-built accommodation for a wide range of key healthcare facilities within the heart of the town centre. Playing an integral role within the community, the Centre not only provides state-of-the-art clinical facilities but will also actively support community involvement with a range of meeting rooms available for use by local interest groups.”
