Description of Works: The Health Care Centre was constructed to cater for the medical needs of the Ravenswood Neighbourhood Community; with the design ethos concentrating on providing a refreshing, friendly and welcoming atmosphere – utilising as much natural daylight and ventilation as possible.The profile of the building was purposefully designed to acknowledge the heritage of the site with many aspects of the development portraying features of the former airbase. Indeed, the Health Care Centre is located adjacent to the refurbished / former Control Tower (subsequently converted to Luxury Apartments), with the two buildings respectively complementing each other.
From conception to the final construction phase, the Design Team worked closely with the Client's Medical representatives; thus ensuring that all of their technical requirements, aspirations for the building and the environment where duly satisfied.
The design of mechanical and electrical services was particularly important; whilst it was essential that the services complied fully with the relevant Hospital Technical Memorandums, it was considered equally important that the services were not overwhelming and in this respect did not detract from the "Cottage" feel of the Health Care Centre.
