GPI are pleased to announce building works are now complete as Patients and staff of the Chells Way Surgery in Stevenage enjoy their new and improved state of the art medical facility, which replaces their outdated and inefficient GP Premises.
The extension and refurbishment of the existing surgery has been a great success and now provides the practice with 894 sqm of new accommodation, alongside new and expanded car parking facilities.
The practice has operated from the existing site since the 1980’s and provides services to over 14,200 patients. The extension and refurbishment has allowed the practice to remain at the very heart of their community whilst benefiting from a professionally designed, long-term and sustainable solution to their premises needs. GPI’s phased approach to this project has also allowed the Practice full operation during the construction phase, ensuring minimal disruption to staff and patient safety when on site and eliminating the need for temporary closure or porta-cabins.
GPI have invested over £2 million into this project to deliver a new surgery that not only provides patients with modern accommodation from which they can see their GPs, but also allows the practice to offer an increased range of services to meet the changing needs of the patient population.
Discussing the success of the project, Practice Manager, Michelle Myers Commented:
“From inception to completion we have found GPI an absolute pleasure to work with. At all times they have been informative, responsive, professional and mindful of the needs of the practice and our patients.
We are delighted with the finished product which will serve our practice population for many years to come. Our state of the art facilities are of a very high quality, excellent design and specification. Chells Surgery would have no hesitation in recommending the GPI team.”

- Summers Inman – Employers Agents/CDM Coordinators/BREEAM Advisors
