Embankment Primary Care Centre

A new three-storey new build medical centre in the Nottingham suburb of West Bridgford serving almost 30,000 patients from five existing GP surgeries.

The building has three levels comprising of the undercroft, ground floor & first floor.

The overall development area extends to 2576sqm.

The main elements of the construction are piled foundations, structural steel framework, in-situ concrete floors brick and render cladding.

The internal fit out provides GP consulting rooms, treatment rooms, administration, toilets, ancillary rooms.

In addition there is a demise area provided for a Pharmacy (area 148.7sqm & Dental Facility (area 100.1sqm).

Key challenges and engineering solutions

The location presented a number of challenges which the BSP Consulting team overcame before planning permission was granted. These included transportation and drainage issues.

The three-storey medical Centre is built on stilts to lift it above potential flood risk, with a car park underneath and a SuDS drainage scheme to protect the local water environment.

A number of transport measures have been put in place to help patients travel to the site, including the provision of an additional direct bus service from West Bridgford town Centre and the surrounding area, an additional crossing facility on Wilford Lane, and signal controller amendments at the Loughborough Road/Wilford Lane junction to improve traffic capacity.

BSP’s work in the healthcare sector includes new builds, extensions and refurbishments.
