Whitegate Health Centre


PRINCIPAL CONTRACTOR: Eric Wright Construction Ltd CLIENT: NHS Primary Care Trust VALUE: £1,055,000.00
WORKS PACKAGE: Light Weight Structural Framing System, Partitions, MF Ceilings & Decorative Bulkheads

A landmark building on the Blackpool skyline, Whitegate Health Centre has been designed sympathetically to nestle into the local community surroundings.

On entering the building, community artwork takes pride of place from the roof space, and provides the user with a visual experience as several glass sculptures hang high above.

Located over 4 levels spanning 10,000m2, the building houses a wide range of services including diagnostics, GP practice, children’s services, community café, physiotherapy and mental health.

The construction consisted of light weight structural framing system to the external envelope, internal partitions and bulkheads throughout the foyer, leading into open staircases wrapped in detailed bulkheads bringing you through to waiting areas and an abundance of treatment rooms.

CLM completed the works over a 27 week construction programme using Knauf plasterboard and metal partitions with Aqua panel to wet areas and Knauf X-ray shielding safe board to the dental suites.

This project was completed to a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
