White Lodge Centre
White Lodge Centre is a centre of excellence supporting disabled people of all ages, the majority of the building houses residential accommodation, therapy and fitness facilities. The Centre includes respite accommodation plus therapy rooms, creative arts, leisure, life skills and information technology suites. The key design challenge was providing a modern specialist multi-use community facility suitable for all ages.
Elementa provided full mechanical, electrical and public health detailed design, including heating, hot and cold water, ventilation, above ground drainage, electrical power, lighting, data, fire alarms and security.
Close working with the project team and understanding of current regulations has enabled the introduction of sustainable elements such as natural ventilation, solar shading, low energy lighting and daylight dimming in order to significantly reduce capital and operational costs.
White Lodge Centre was the recipient of a ‘Special Judges Award’ at the Building Better Healthcare Awards.
