Panacea Medical Centre, Worthing

Pope Consulting provided strategic advice and performance specifications for the conversion of the former United Reform Church in Shelley Road to this specialist eye polyclinic. There was sufficient height in the main structure to accommodate new 1st and 2nd floors. These are divided into offices and consulting rooms and there is an operating suite and recovery room for minor procedures.

A full height atrium at the front of the building retains the aspect of the tall, stained glass windows and a small chapel at the rear showcases the original carvings and windows at the altar end. Feature brickwork and the original timber roof structure appear in many of the rooms.

The building has heat recovery ventilation, air source heat pump heating and cooling and low energy lighting.

Pope Consulting entered this project for the 2013 Acumen Business Law Commercial Property Awards and it won the Best Refurbishment category.
