Storrington now has a medical facility that not only meets the needs of the local population but is also a building patients and staff can be proud of.
The building was opened as the COVID pandemic hit and was quickly designated a COVID hot hub and one of the first COVID vaccination centres in the country. This was all enabled by the design, layout, and accessibility of the building, the onsite-car park, and the extremely dedicated and efficient practice team.
As well as meeting the immediate needs of the pandemic, the new building will cater to the practice’s longer-term requirements. In terms of reducing energy costs and environmental efficiency, it has achieved BREEAM Excellent sustainability standard and boasts air source heat pumps, electric car charging points, state-of-the-art insulation, as well as movement sensors for lights, and other energy-efficient mechanical and electrical installations. With regards to efficient working practices and aiding communication between multidisciplinary teams, the new building allows different specialisms to work alongside each other and provides space on-site for allied health services including counselling, physiotherapy and occupational therapy services.
