The Devizes Integrated Care Centre is a new facility to transform the delivery of health and social care for the local population. The construction of a new purpose-built facility supports the reprovision of community health, mental health services, primary care and other services and provides an expansion of the primary care capacity for the locality. Filling a role between a GP surgery and a community hospital, the building has no wards but provides a range of outpatient and GP services. The building is efficient in its layout, giving consideration to future flexibility and environmental impact. The structural solutions have been developed in collaboration with other disciplines to produce a coordinated design which maximises the amount of natural ventilation and minimising energy in use. It is hoped that this will be a template for further Integrated Care Centres.
