This new build, private medical practice in Telford, Shropshire, has a requirement for BREEAM 2011 Healthcare: ‘Very Good’.
Sustainable Development features include: Excellent thermal performance, high quality environmental conditions, responsibly sourced construction materials, and a very low impact on the local ecology.
Fellows Add Value:
In coordination with the project team, the Fellows BREEAM Consultants have been able to assess the proposed scheme and benchmark its performance against the BREEAM criteria.
Fellows always recommend that their BREEAM consultants are appointed as early as possible within the design process, to ensure that all feasibility designs consider sustainability and meet the BREEAM criteria. This is not always possible, and in the case of Parkway Medical Practice, Fellows have had to implement recommendations based upon an existing design. Although this limits our ability to affect design choices, the end result will indeed be a scheme which will fully embrace sustainability and is also efficient in achieving cost effective BREEAM credits at the earliest opportunity.
