Kingswood Medical Centre, Harrogate, North Yorkshire

“Open and honest discussions from the outset ensured that the full project team were fully consulted and aware of progress throughout the project.”

This affluent area provided a challenge in finding a suitable site for the Kingswood Medical Centre and its multiple occupants. Through UHD's intensive site searching skills and knowledge, the preferred site was located and sourced, complementing Harrogate Hospital opposite.

As part of the original specification and development, a specialist dental suite was required. Due to the nature of the service, specific consideration was required in the design, circulation, location and workability of the space. Therefore, a separate waiting area coupled with short circulation distances were incorporated.

“Open and honest discussions from the outset ensured that the full project team were fully consulted and aware of progress throughout the project. This team approach, initiated by United Healthcare Developments, was the fundamental to the success of our scheme.”
