Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Panton Sargent, an architecture, design and surveying firm has been applauded for its exemplary design work for new healthcare and social care buildings. The practice has won praise from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) – the Government’s advisor of architecture, urban design and public space – for its work on the £2.3m Woodgate Valley Primary Care Centre in Birmingham and the £4.5m Chelmsley Wood Primary Care Centre in Solihull, the first two buildings completed under Birmingham and Solihull Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) scheme. Both facilities form key parts of local regeneration plans. CABE was impressed that Panton Sargent’s designs made a real effort to serve the needs of staff and the local community and that the resulting buildings contribute something of quality, worth and respect to the areas. The first of three hospices designed by the practice, the new premises of St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester, looks set to become the flagship in new centres
