Working closely with the Client and design team, Henry J Lyons Architects and CSEA Civil/Structural Engineers, Callaghan Engineering are responsible for full mechanical and electrical engineering design.
The centre is located on an existing HSE health centre site close to the town centre. The minimum building energy rating target is A3 with the team striving to achieve an A2 rating through the use of renewable technologies such are air-source heat pumps and rainwater harvesting. The building is designed to maximise natural ventilation.
The electrical power distribution for the project required an on-site substation to be designed into facility which houses a team of general practice doctors, dentists , and physiotherapists. The building also provides a pharmacy, café, community hall and old-folks centre.
Overall area over 3 floors is approximately 5,000 square metres.
