Seaham Primary Care Centre
Working under the LIFT framework for Accent, P+HS has designed a new Primary Care building at Seaham which forms part of an overall regeneration strategy for St John’s Square.
Developed by NHS County Durham, working closely with Durham County Council, the brief for the Project was to provide a flexible and sustainable building to accommodate a new health centre for County Durham PCT.
The building will include GP facilities, as well as a modern walk-in, therapy and treatment centre for minor injuries, diagnostics and dentistry. Designed and located to be easily accessible, the new centre is due to open in Autumn 2011 and will offer extended opening hours to reflect the needs of the local community. The use of brick, sustainable timber and green roofs all reflect its setting in the heart of Seaham and create a vision for its future; the building is targeting BREEAM Excellent
The P+HS graphics team provided innovative interactive pdf images for the GPs during the design development process, to help them visualise the proposed new space.
