CMS Group have been working with the medical centre for many years as they have grown the practice to serve some 14,000 patients from their purpose-built premises on a particularly unique site which was formerly a tram station. In fact, two lengths of tramway still exist within the carpark.
Since 1997 CMS Group have been engaged to provide Architectural, Project Management and Quantity Surveying services for the design and delivery of the surgery building followed by further extensions to facilitate expansion culminating with a large development in 2009 to provide additional consultation rooms and independent Pharmacy services to the site.
Most recently, CMS Group provided the roles of Architect, Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designers on this complex development of the existing Gloucester Road Medical Centre. CMS have previously undertaken a modest extension project however following closure of neighbouring surgeries the practice required significant expansion. The project comprised the addition of a new storey providing 5no. consulting rooms and meeting space, a new entrance and expanded waiting area together with a 2-storey rear extension providing 4no. treatment suites and admin space.
The construction stage took place during the Covid-19 pandemic and with a fully considered phased programme proceeded whilst maintaining no loss of service to patients.
