MedicX, a leading multi-fund investor in and developer of healthcare property in the United Kingdom, was developing a new medical centre in South London. The Existing buildings on Tooting High Street were demolished to make way for a part four/part two storey building – comprising of a medical centre over the ground and first floors and residential units on floors two and three. The scheme was also required to achieve a BREEAM standard of ‘Very Good’.
The medical centre housed 23 consultation rooms, four treatment rooms, three meeting rooms, waiting areas, interview room and office space. The scheme also featured a pharmacy on the ground floor- accessed from either the High Street or through the medical centre. The remaining space comprised of three 2 bedroom flats, and one 3 bedroom flat was built on the second floor whilst five 2 bedroom flats were created on floor three. After demolition of the existing building, the site required remediation of contamination and the removal of some petrol interceptor tanks; this was then followed by the construction of pad and beam foundations which formed the foundation for the steel frame structure to be constructed. The building also had a brick and trespa cladding system with a single membrane roof.
