Surbiton Health Centre
This project comprised the creation of a new health care centre, primary school and nursery as part of a site wide masterplan to redevelop the former Surbiton Hospital site. This site was used to provide a new 446 place primary school, Lime Tree Primary, to meet local demand for school places and a new health centre to serve a patient population of 73,000.
The health center incorporates a wide range of diagnostic and treatment facilities, including 40 consulting/examination rooms, 15 consulting/ minor treatment rooms, an operations suite, minor injuries unit, Audiology Assessment booth, Mammography Department, Xray Department, Retinal screening, and Dental Suite. Each room type has its own particular services requirements and demands, including underfloor heating and natural ventilation in the consulting/examination rooms, dedicated full fresh air system serving the operations suite, and air conditioning within the Xray department where there are high equipment demands.
Low carbon features include the development achieving BREEAM Excellent, backed by a large PV array , and a 60kW (thermal) Combined Heat and Power generation set, while the whole site is designed to encourage ‘green travel’ in line with GLA directives, including the provision of 12 parking spaces with electric car charging points. Both the health centre and school were completed on time and in budget, the school opening in September 2012, and the health centre receiving its first patients in March 2013.
