Woodseats Medical Centre Sheffield

The new Centre provides the local community with a truly comprehensive facility, where they can spend quality time whilst caring for their health and meeting other residents.

Woodseats Medical Centre was has been developed on the site of a former library on Chesterfield Road, which was in a poor condition and no longer economical to repair.

This vibrant busy 5 star rated medical practice in the suburbs of Sheffield, services a large population in a multi-cultural neighbourhood.

In 2015 the practice decided to build a bespoke medical Centre, with sufficient space to include, uniquely, a local library and a Lloyds Pharmacy.

Key challenges and engineering solutions

The site drainage required close liaison with the LLFA (Lead Local Flood Authorities).

BSP Consulting’s engineers worked on complex control drainage designs which saved the client over £10,000 in attenuation costs.

The site was very tight and had a large sewer that ran across it. To fit the floor space on the site, the upper floors had to be cantilevered.

There were also retaining walls against the boundaries that were very tight to get at.

BSP Consulting provided a design to put the retaining walls adjacent the boundary, rather than as part of the building to avoid an expensive tanking detail.

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