BREEAM Excellent


This three storey 2,700sqm health centre creates a welcoming and scaleable development that fits perfectly within the local environment.

The local landscape is softened by the mansion of trees, greenery and shrubs. The new health centre offers a range of health services including GP Practices and community services including podiatry, sexual health, treatment rooms, and speech and language therapies.

Improvements include DDA compliant facility, modern space standards and sustainable technology.

The project has achieved a rating of ‘Excellent’ in the BREEAM assessment model.

Colne Health Centre, was one of three projects delivered for East Lancashire PCT where we were able to reduce cost for the PCT through standard detailing and supply chain efficiencies.

Key Challenges

This project is situated in the centre of Colne, on an island site surrounded by busy roads and therefore careful planning and site logistics were of the upmost importance.

Added Value

We were able to add value to this project by working with the client to deliver a state-of-the-art facility within a restricted budget.

During the project we employed local labour and apprentices and donated pallets to a local museum.

Client Feedback

“We are really pleased with the finished result and would like to thank everyone who has been part of this exciting new development for Colne.”
