Ardrossan Medical Centre

A new medical centre has been developed in the centre of Ardrossan providing a range of vital health services to the local community.

The project has transformed a derelict site into a new purpose built health facility, incorporating the listed former police station building.

The 1000 sq m centre provides a new doctors' surgery and ancillary healthcare space.

Located in the heart of Ardrossan and building on a prominent derelict site, the development represents significant change to the main route through the town, a valuable development for both residents and tourists on their way to the Arran Ferry.

The development creates 10 full times jobs. The build created 30 construction jobs and 5 training places.

In January 2013, £2.5 million of funding was secured for this development project as part of the Scottish Government's commitment to "shovel-ready" capital projects. The GP's partnership has taken a 25 year lease of the new property, with the support of the NHS.

The building work was completed by spring 2014 and the new facility opened in May 2014.

The building’s design targets a BREEAM “Very Good” rating for its design, construction and environmental performance. The predicted energy usage is 58.06kwh per sq m per annum.

The project was shortlisted in the Scottish Property Awards in December 2014  in three categories, as Development of the Year (Public Buildings), Architectural Excellence Award (Public Buildings) and also as Town Centre Regeneration Project of the Year.
