The project is to accommodate GP Surgeries, Acute Outpatients, Mental Health, Community Clinics, Local Authority and a Public Library in the town centre of Tilbury.
Our design team collaborated with Thurrock Council, Thurrock CCG and various NHS partners to deliver the 33,000sqft new build, which will provide the people of Tilbury with improved access to physical, mental and social care in a single location with integrated facilities and service provisions, supporting the wider Essex Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.
The design principles were driven by the need for a new community presence in the heart of the town’s neglected urban fabric and act as a catalyst for future improvements to local amenity areas surrounding Civic Square. To do this, community support facilities and the public library are based at street level to encourage active frontages, reinforcing a sense of civic presence on the high street. First floor will then be occupied by clinical functions and the second floor providing further clinical and administrative spaces.
