ABOUT THE BUILDING
Albion Road Clinic is an NHS clinic located in North Shields, Tyneside, operated by North Tyneside Primary Care Trust. The clinic comprises a two storey development providing consultation/treatment spaces, local day and palliative care, dental surgeries and administrative space.
As a refurbishment project, the scheme focused on improving and upgrading the internal spaces and building services.
Department of Health requirements state that all new build and refurbishment projects within the NHS estate must use BREEAM to assess their environmental performance. New build projects are required to achieve an ‘Excellent’ rating and refurbishment projects are required to achieve a ‘Very Good’ rating. Albion Road Clinic is the first building to achieve full certification under BREEAM Healthcare and meet this requirement.
