Central Surgery Sawbridgeworth

We are pleased to announce the completion of the Central Surgery, Sawbridgeworth. This general practice based in Hertfordshire has undergone significant expansion since 2017.

The biggest changes have come with the construction of a brand new two-storey extension to the existing building. This provides nine new consulting rooms and two rooms for minor operations. There is also a new reception area and ancillary space.

Working closely with the architect Hawkins Brown and contractor MP Build, we succeeded in an acoustic design which achieved the BREEAM status Very Good.

Stage Two of the design was a complete refurbishment of the original building. Despite significant technical challenges, the surgery has been able to remain functioning throughout the construction and refurbishment period.

Though at times a significant challenge, we met the criteria for external plant noise and ensured compliance with the Department of Health Technical Memorandum HTM 08-01: Acoustics.

The result is a surgery for the 21st century, enabling it to offer a greatly improved service to the community.
