St Ann's Valley Centre, Nottingham
BIM (Building Information Modelling)
A project between CPMG, Nottingham City Council and Nottingham City NHS has realised designs to help redevelop the Robin Hood Chase area of St Ann’s in Nottingham.
The new Joint Service Centre incorporates three GP practices, primary care trust facilities, youth and child outreach services, meeting rooms, an open-plan office for staff users and Nottingham City Homes, a community library and a pharmacy.
The overarching design approach was inclusivity – to provide all community members with accessible amenities and services in a welcoming setting. Activity in and around the site is critical to create a sense of safety.
Internally the open-plan arrangement encourages people to make use of all the facilities and services available in one visit, complemented with thoughtful interior design. At the heart of the building sits the principal circulation core with a feature staircase and two glazed lifts which provide access to the first floor.
The design included extensive enabling works including highway closure and reconfiguration, site remediation and extensive utilities diversion including Nottingham’s district heating pipe and a five meter retaining structure.
