Devonport Hill Surgery
Devonport Hill Surgery, Plymouth
ADG was appointed by GPIC Ltd. to provide architectural design services in the development of a detailed planning application for a new Primary Care facility in Devonport, Plymouth.
Devonport Hill Surgery is prominently located between the existing Cumberland Centre and Peninsula Dental School. The building was designed specifically for the Marlborough Street GP Surgery, which relocated from its outdated and unsatisfactory former premises. The initial design stages involved completing a full site appraisal including site constraints and opportunities, building orientation, location, massing and access. We collaborated closely with the end users throughout the design process in order to fully understand the practice’s requirements and optimise the proposed layout and facilities provided within the new building.
Following the successful planning application process we were involved with the tender process including tender interviews and then novated to the successful tendering contractor for the detailed design stages of the project. We continued to work closely with the end users during the construction stages to ensure that their relocation was as seamless as possible. This included providing an interior design service and liaising closely with the practice manager, medical staff, fit-out subcontractors, IT consultants and suppliers.
Devonport Health Centre has achieved a dramatically improved environment for staff and enhanced access to GP and health services for the practice’s existing and future patients. It provides an opportunity for the practice to deliver expanded and enhanced services and treatments and forms an important part of the regeneration of this area of the city. At ADG we have developed the technical experience and capability to deliver healthcare projects and are conversant with the relevant Health Building Notes and Health Technical Memoranda. Our knowledge of the specific technical requirements for the healthcare sector enables us to produce creative design solutions that are fully compliant and ensures successful project delivery.
