Medical Reception Station, ATR Pirbright

Client
Ministry of Defence – Defence Estates

Description
The Medical Reception Station forms part of the British Army's initiative to rationalise and improve training facilities for new recruits. It combines primary care facilities in the form of a health care centre, dental clinic and physiotherapy suite with in-patient ward accommodation. It serves not only soldiers but also staff and families linked to the base.

Innovations & Added Value
As part of a larger military facility the building is subject to terrorist attack.  It was therefore necessary to consider measures to combat this risk.  They included the provision of safety glazing to the canal side elevation which was particularly vulnerable to attack.  This allowed windows to be installed where it might be necessary to use solid construction.
