The Heart of Hounslow Health Centre, London

A new Care Centre built for Hownslow Primary Care Trust by Building Better Health Ltd under the private finance LIFT scheme: thought to be the largest primary care centre in the UK. Flat slabs were used to keep the overall building height to a minimum, as well as providing some thermal mass to reduce the load on the mechanical ventilation, which was essential to minimise the noise from the overhead Heathrow flight path. The private finance programme was very tight and piling work started on site only 14 weeks after the Stage E report was approved by the clients.

Completed 2007.
