We’re really pleased to be starting on site in May 2020, with an extension and refurbishment project, for Chestfield Medical Centre near Whitstable. The project will follow government guidelines with regard to Covid-19 health and safety measures.

Martello have been appointed as Employer’s Agent and CDM Principal Designer, having submitted the initial Architectural Planning Application for the extension to the existing building.

Chestfield Medical Centre is part of the successful, forward thinking Whitstable Medical Practice, providing high quality clinics for the local community, with services for NHS patients, offering care closer to home with shorter waits and at less cost to the NHS.

The Principal Contractor for this exciting design and build contract is Breem Construction, whom we have worked with on a number of projects. The build consists of a single storey extension and refurbishment of the existing building, to provide a new, state of the art reception and waiting area, as well as eight new consulting rooms.

This project is of a particular interest to the Managing Director of Martello Building Consultancy because when he was working for his father’s building consultancy firm over 20 years ago he assisted with the ‘original’ extension to the Medical Centre.

The project is planned to take 9 months and we look forward to sharing some updates and pictures with you as the work progresses over the course of the year.
