What We Did

Extension and alterations to Chorley Education Centre at Chorley and South Ribble District General Hospital to provide bespoke undergraduate teaching accommodation.

The new two storey extension is linked by a new entrance and reception area to the existing building and provides new state of the art training facilities. The accommodation includes a library, a clinic skills unit, tutorial rooms, meeting rooms and a pc suite together with staff office accommodation. The associated upgrade of the existing building included alterations to provide a cyber cafe, meeting and seminar rooms.

Low energy lighting was installed throughout and a new ventilation installation incorporating heat recovery in parts of the unit together with associated upgrade of facilities and redecoration successfully linked the old with the new to provide a new fresh working environment.
