Peak Health Solutions Ltd
On a sloping site, our work comprised the demolition of the existing clinic and construction of a new health centre with associated parking and landscaping.
The steel framed two storey building has a curtain walling envelope with brickwork and through colour render. Foundations consist of deep fill pads and strip beams. A retaining wall forms the basement rear wall. The weather and sloping site provided challenges and during periods of heavy rain we diverted the water to ensure work could continue.
The incoming supplies were developed during the design and build process. We worked with the water and electricity providers to locate suitable access points to the building and to provide a location for a new substation which has improved the electricity capacity locally.
Three types of floor construction were designed into the scheme – beam and block to upper ground floor, ground bearing slab to lower ground floor, and composite decking and concrete to the first floor. The roof consists of timber bearers supported by steel frame rafters with slate tiles on cross bearers. Internal walls generally consist of plasterboard linings upon metal stud framing.
The project achieved BREEAM Excellent and incorporated roof mounted photovoltaic panels.
