We were appointed to design and build a new Doctors Surgery on the land of the historic Wickford Market in Essex for the NHS.

Work included:

  • CFA Piles to a depth of 22m. Construct pile caps and reinforced concrete beams with holding down bolts for steel frame structure.
  • A full steel framed structure bolted down to the foundations. 
  • Substructure walls with drainage and service ducts and a block & beam Floor.
  • Ayreshire metal framework including insulation and ties for masonry construction.
  • Permarock rendered blockwork, face brickwork with stone cills and headers to windows and stone band at first floor level.
  • Roof constructed in timber with a tiled mono pitch trussed roof forming the edge protection to the main cut to falls roof, covered in a single ply membrane.
  • A full internal fit out with metal stud walls with acoustic plasterboard. Ceilings were mixed MF and suspended with tiles. Floors were vinyl and carpet throughout.
  • Lift installed with 2 No. concrete staircases either end of the building.
  • Externally we constructed a 24 bay car park with subtle landscaped areas around the building.

The entire construction was built under NHS strict guidelines as well as British Standards Code of Practice.
