NBRS was engaged by a private consortium of specialist surgeons to transform an existing office building into a high quality medical and surgical centre.
Architectural services from the first stages of site selection and feasibility through concept design, development and construction are being undertaken for MDEquity a consortium of surgeons wanting a purpose built hospital. This project’s challenging task is to convert an existing six storey purpose-built office building into a large private hospital, while maintaining its existing character and aesthetic. The building is a large, modern, rectilinear building on a lakeside site, in the centre of the Norwest Business Park.
The planning solution for the building has been primarily driven by the positioning of the Operating Theatres. Their requirement for a clear ceiling height being greater than the existing structural floor to floor height available and their need for new dedicated air conditioning systems dictated that they be located either on the fourth floor or on the ground floor.
The leading-edge facility incorporates 10 operating theatres inclusive of dedicated day surgery ophthalmology operating rooms, dedicated day surgery endoscopy units and short, intermediate and major surgical operating theatres. The facilities also include specialist post-operative in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation facilities; a specially designed on site hydrotherapy pool; specialist on site consulting suites; specialist on site radiology and pathology, with a state-of-the-art design allowing efficient movement of patients throughout the facility. In addition, it boasts high quality international conference facilities with 300 parking spots available on site and extensive landscape works, as well as an on-site café.
