Balfour Beatty Engineering Services reports that it is on track to deliver sustainable initiatives and new technology as part of the M&E package for a new £7 million primary-care health resource in Warrington town centre. Due for completion in autumn 2012, the new building on Legh Street will accommodate two GP practices serving 9000 registered patients and a pharmacy. The development will also provide breast-screening, child-health and dental services.

Sustainable initiatives such as temperature monitoring, solar hot water and rainwater harvesting have been integrated. There is also an intelligent lighting system with presence and daylight detectors.

The development is targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. Andrew Wightman, BBES project manager, says, ‘Combined with a sustainable approach, the building will not only offer a reduction in carbon emissions but will provide Warrington PCT with significant cost savings in both delivery as well as the building in use.’
