Northampton General Hospital Masterplan Northampton, UK
Sheppard Robson led a multi-disciplinary team to develop a strategic masterplan for Northampton General Hospital.
The first stage forms a comprehensive development appraisal of a 3.5ha site at the west of the site that has been earmarked for disposal. The second stage develops a robust masterplan for the 12ha hospital site.
The West of the site includes the original hospital building and other grade II listed buildings that have been evaluated for clinical, office, and residential uses.
High level design studies and consultation with the local authorities have identified commercial office development as the most suitable land use in terms of sensitive restoration and town centre development.
The masterplan for the hospital has provided a compact development model that creates opportunities for landmark buildings and minimises walking distances between departments through a considered pedestrian movement strategy.
