"The new Lytham Primary Care Centre in Lancashire has been highly commended at the 2010 Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) East Midlands Awards. Designed by BRP Architects, the centre, which opened last year, was praised for its references to the traditional architectural heritage of the local area through the use of red brick and rendering in the construction process. Developed by MedicX, the facility aims to provide joined-up healthcare services in modern, purpose-built surroundings. Mike Adams, managing director of MedicX, said:
“We specialise in delivering healthcare premises tailored to the specific needs of an area. We worked closely with the architect, local stakeholders and the PCT to ensure that Lytham Primary Care Centre would provide for all the health needs of the community under one roof, in a modern and innovative building. We are therefore delighted that the excellent environment the centre offers patients, staff and visitors has now been recognised externally by RIBA.”
The development also made the final shortlist for Health Property of the Year at the Health Investor Awards 2010 and was the winning scheme for the RIBA Leicestershire & Rutland Society of Architects Awards 2010."
