MOORGATE MEDICAL CENTRE : BURY

Client : Thornfield Properties PLC

 

A new build 4 storey
medical centre
to provide 1400msq of accommodation for the relocation of an existing facility. The development formed part of a £30 million project for the redevelopment of Bury Town Centre to provide a high quality retail, residential and leisure development to regenerate a currently run-down area on the edge of the retail heart of Bury.

Our involvement started with the development of the
schedule of accommodation
, through to the
OBC
and
FBC
stages, into the
construction
phase providing architectural and CDMC services. In the early stages of this project the most challenging role was to meet and coordinate the requirements of the 4 GP practices and the Local PCT. We succeeded by developing a scheme that was efficient, maximising the clinical areas while minimising the support spaces by using shared facilities. Designing a project to be part of the area redevelopment required careful dialogue with the local planners in the pre detail stage to fulfill the overall objectives of the regeneration scheme. The facility provides a
walk-in centre
servicing the community from 7am to 10pm, 4 GP practices with 32
consulting rooms
, 2
minor surgery
units, x-ray
imaging
room, 7 community
dentistry
rooms,
mental health
services and an
independent pharmacy
. The scheme has become a strong beacon to the regeneration of this area of Bury.
