Kennett Road Dental Practice
The transformation of Kennett Road Dental Practice is impressive. The modest two-surgery practice needed to be doubled in size to keep up with the demands of NHS dentistry provision and secure the future of the business. The design of the surgery fully complies with best practice guidelines set out in Department of Health memorandum HTM 01-05
Throughout the 8-month construction process, the practice needed to maintain business as usual. Great care was taken to work around the needs of the practice and phase the work. Excellent communication and collaboration between the client, design team and contractor ensured a smooth running project and ensured the needs of the practice were put first.
The first phase was the construction of a single-storey extension to the rear to create two new surgeries and decontamination rooms and staff parking in the garden to the rear. Phase 2 was the remodelling of the existing building to provide a third surgery, reception and patient waiting area. The first floor flat has been converted into a fourth surgery, patient waiting area and staff accommodation.
By January 2019 the work was substantially finished and the practice became fully operational with a few finishing touches awaited - final photos to follow - watch this space!
Construction cost £400,000 + dental fitout
