Through Coventrys LIFT initiative a consortium including Galliford Try were appointed to develop various designs for the Primary Care Trust. This key building was one of the first to be implemented and was designed through working closely with staff and users. The new surgery encompasses accommodation for two separate doctors practices, providing consultation rooms for 14 doctors, nurses and reception/waiting areas within a contemporary two storey building. Following an initial design prepared for bidding purposes we developed the detailed scheme in collaboration with Coventry PCT and the doctors who were to occupy the surgery.
The building is principally of load bearing construction with a tiled roof. The external envelope is a combination of brickwork, render and western red cedar. The interior uses materials such as exposed timber glulam beams to create a warm, welcoming environment.
