Launceston Medical Centre, Cornwall
ADG have been commissioned as lead consultants and architects to double the floor area of the existing medical centre which serves Launceston with a 598m2 two storey extension.
The facility needed to maintain full patient services throughout the project, including use of the car park so following a space analysis, it quickly became clear that the existing site was not large enough to contain the accommodation.
ADG assisted the client to negotiate for the acquisition of land from the NHS who operate the adjoining community hospital. Discussions took many months, but eventually sufficient land was procured to support the development of a new wing, linked to the existing building.
Work is on site at RIBA Stage 5 and involves erection of a steel frame to support two floors of accommodation with patient areas on the ground floor and staff accommodation on the upper floor. The medical centre has remained fully operational throughout the work and there have been no safety incidents.
