St.Mary's medical practice construction commences

Construction of St.Mary's West End Medical Practice, Edinburgh has commenced on site. The £2.6million facility sits within the grounds of the Category A listed Cathedral and precinct, incorporating the existing Walpole Hall, a new masons workshop and yard, and new build pavilion with GP and treatment rooms.

The BREEAM rated proposal incorporates a green roof and ground source heat pump technology to supplement heating and hot water systems. The design is based on an holistic approach to health care with a reduction in corridor space and an organic shaped waiting room area that responds to the garden and existing trees. Completion is scheduled for spring 2014.
