Orchard Croft Medical Centre Extension

Orchard Croft Medical Centre

Horbury, Wakefield

Bowman Riley was commissioned by Orchard Croft Medical Centre through Solutions4Care under a traditional form of contract to provide the role of Principal Designer on the extension of an existing medical facility in the town of Horbury, near Wakefield.

Built in the 1970s, Orchard Croft Medical Centre had outgrown the existing building leading to medical staff working in areas that were no longer fit for purpose.

The challenge was to provide the new facilities to a limited capped public funding based on a set area agreed with the District Valuer.

The complex development required a unique design to achieve the exact area ratio to comply with District Valuer standards. Building information modelling (BIM) and Revit Architecture was adopted for this project, which added value in terms of aiding the planning process and stakeholder understanding through 3D visualisations and helped ensure compliance with the District Valuer.
