Tony Young to oversee two large extensions to central Northampton Medical Practice

Posted on 17 March 2016.

Neil Mason Associates has been appointed as the project manager for building improvements to a medical practice in Northampton. The project, which will see the construction of two new extensions to each side of the existing pharmacy and dentist, is due to start on site next month. 

Tony Young, Neil Mason Associates’ Building Surveyor, is working with the architect and the structural engineer to ensure the extension will meet the needs of the practice whilst remaining sympathetic to the original building and current surroundings. Close communication with the two current tenants, Lloyds Pharmacy and The Dental Suite, has ensured the new buildings will also meet their needs and plans are now in place to minimise any disruption as both businesses will continue operate as usual while the contractors are on site. 

During initial planning meetings, it was discovered that the practice had for some years been experiencing issues of water ingress into the existing building. An inspection of the roof has shown that the original design and materials of the roof were inadequate, so remedial works have been added to the extension project. Accurate design and selection of the correct materials for the pitch of roof will rectify the problem. 

The project starts on site next month so further updates on progress will appear on our website later this year.
