BREEAM Rating:
Very Good

Owned by NHS South Tyneside Primary Care Trust, the existing 1980’s buildings were due for refurbishment. Two nearby GP practices were relocated to Stanhope Parade which now provides Sexual Health, Podiatry and Phlebotomy services and four GP practices.

Extensive consultation with clinical staff and Stanhope Parade Health Centre users revealed the importance of improving the internal and external circulation routes and main entrance which was set back from the road and out of sight to visitors. The new, re-located entrance improves the streetscape and gives the building an identity within its surroundings. A series of coloured exterior grade panels will enliven the main facades, as well as allow new, larger window openings to be inserted within the existing brickwork. The result is a modern, safe and welcoming facility which has breathed new life into an existing building.

“A clear transformation.”
Stephen Naylor, Head of Estates
