MANCHESTER, UK – IBI Group has won a Best Completed Design award at the Architects for Health (AfH) awards for its work on the Cockermouth Community Hospital and Health Centre in the Cumbria region of the UK.
Officially opened in August, the £11 million ($19.9 million CDN) primary care facility was praised for the high quality of its patient environment as well as its sustainable and contextual relationship to the local vernacular.
The prize was presented at this year’s Healthcare Estates Conference in Manchester, at which IBI Group’s healthcare team were also exhibiting and invited as guest speakers.
“This award is testament to the collaborative effort made by all members of the team that helped shape Cockermouth Community Hospital,” said IBI Group’s Iain Todd. “We are very proud of the design and the positive impact it has had on the wellbeing of the local community.”
Designed in collaboration with eLIFT Cumbria Limited and Head Tenant Community Health Partnership, Cockermouth Community Hospital and Health Centre comprises GP surgeries, a base for community health teams, a seven-day pharmacy, and outpatient clinic space for specialists.
