Construction of a steel frame four storey extension to the existing doctors surgery
From 2016 to 2017 Fifields Construction delivered a project comprising the construction of a four-storey extension to the existing doctors surgery at the Barton Surgery, Dawlish.
The works included the creation of nine new consulting rooms, a doctor’s room and disabled WC’s on the ground and lower ground floors. Also included was the formation of a new Lloyds Pharmacy on the first floor, with a staff area and glazed conference room on the second floor.
Externally, the construction was made up of blockwork and coloured pro-rend, with the higher level constructed of profile metal cladding with aluminium double-glazed windows.
Refurbishment works to the existing doctor’s rooms and consulting rooms were negotiated and carried out whilst the main contract works were in progress.
The contract was carried out whilst the existing surgery remained in operation at all times. Through careful planning, clear communication and effective workmanship, Fifields Construction were able to eliminate any disruption to the day to day operations of the practice, receiving maximum praise from the client at the end of the project.
