The scheme involved the new build construction of a two storey primary care centre, which accommodates a GP surgery, consulting rooms, teaching seminar areas, specialist clinic and a pharmacy. 

Sustainability was key to achieving planning consent for the project as the building was placed on Green Belt land. The design of the building was curved and lowered into the ground by two meters to maintain the silhouette of the broadleaf woodland backdrop.

Local materials, such as natural stone and natural green oak cladding, were chosen because they gradually mellow and harmonise with the surroundings. The building was designed and constructed to achieve an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating. 

It successfully received the following awards:

Green Apple Sustainability Award 2021

LRSA Design Award 2021

“It’s a wonderful building…nothing but praise from the patients; doctors and the staff are ecstatic…it was all that we hoped for.”

-Alan Johnson, West Wirral GP Partner.
