Kells Primary Care Centre completed 2015
Kells Primary Care Centre, located on the Dublin Road in Kells, Co Meath is a 30,000 ft ² (approx) state of the art medical facility, catering for the people of Kells and wider environs. This gateway building has been constructed using the highest quality materials, which will ensure it stays looking its best for many years to come.
The building is broken into two distinctive blocks, over three and four levels, which are connected via fully glazed atrium space with linking bridges at each level. The atrium acts as the entrance foyer and meeting place, accessible from both front and (main) rear doors and contains a coffee dock for staff and visitors. From here users can take one of two passenger lifts or the stairs to any of the upper floors.
The buildings foot print has been kept deliberately small to reduce walking distances and consequently the amount of time visitors have to spend in the centre. Designed to be fully accessible to all users, there are over 100 car parking spaces, including five disabled parking bays located to the rear of the building. There are also ten cycle parking bays located under shelter, located adjacent to the car park. A comprehensive landscaping strategy has also been implemented throughout the development, providing a mixture of hard and soft landscaping areas around the building.
The building is extremely energy efficient, with high levels of insulation and air tightness, which have both helped it achieve its A3 BER rating.
