Bright, modern, good value workplace for staff wellbeing and efficiency
Morriston Hospital is one of the largest general medicare facilities in Wales with a total of 750 beds. Founded in the mid-1900s, the pre-existing campus housed its clinical departments in dispersed locations. When the hospital desired to consolidate its task force under one roof, they called on our architecture and interior design teams for assistance.
The Clinical Services Accommodation Building aggregates Morriston’s administrative staff into brand new purpose-built work space. Not only does the building provide a more efficient and collaborative work environment for 500 staff, but it frees up space in the hospital for clinical expansion. Now, two clinics—one for diabetes and the other for occupational health—are located on the ground floor for easy public access.
The challenge? The budget was tight, and we had to think creatively about how to integrate this small clinical component into a non-clinical building. Evolving from the analysis of space needs, flexibility considerations, and positioning, we designed the new office space to tight space standards that maximizes daylight and offers expansive views without compromising ergonomics and environmental quality.
The plan form is a ‘U’—two flanking wings and a central linking wing—around a central landscaped courtyard.
Flexibly-planned workspace is located in the flanking wings while shared facilities are located in the central wing. This configuration was found beneficial as it allowed some independence for team identity at the same time as encouraging collaboration and social interaction.
