Buxted GP Surgery



Buxted, East Sussex


The concept of developing a new surgery in Buxted, East Sussex first emerged in 2006 and was initially associated with a large new residential development in the centre of the village. AHP were appointed to provide architectural and project management services.

AHP worked closely with the local community, the Doctors and the PCT to provide a design that met the requirements of all the stakeholders. Working under the Design and Build Contractor, AHP brought together a full design team and subsequently provided a full design package and dealt with the discharge of planning conditions. The building was designed to meet current Heath Technical standards and the space is efficiently laid out to maximise rental levels and to the satisfaction of the District Valuer.

The double height space in the rotunda, a key feature of the design, serves as the surgery's waiting room and provides ample circulation space. The glazed entrance and windows allow natural light to flood into this space and coupled with the wall and floor finishes help create a calming environment. Extending from the rotunda are two wings housing Consulting Rooms, Minor Procedures suites, Nurses Rooms, Utility and storage rooms. The topography of the site was used in the design to accommodate a lower ground to the west end of the building allowing staff and administrative functions to be located away from the patient access areas.

Thirty five parking spaces serve the surgery with a further two disabled and two residential parking spaces. To accommodate the future community hall, a further ten spaces have been provided which are accessible outside the surgery's opening hours.

Construction work on site commenced in May 2011 and the completed project was handed over on time and on budget on the 6th April 2012.
