Orthoderm Clinic, Hillsborough


Constructed on a brownfield site that slopes away from the road, this contemporary healthcare facility required the demolition of a bungalow prior to establishing traditional trench-fill concrete foundations to firm bearing in ground characterized by the challenge of waterborne silts and sand.

The building’s structure is part steel frame and part load-bearing masonry, with suspended pre-cast concrete floors, timber trussed rafter roof with concrete tiles and roof windows.

Facilities, many of which were designed to meet clinical standards, included consulting rooms, radiography and scanning spaces, waiting areas, reception, offices, toilets, stores, etc.

Foul and storm drainage was integrated with the existing local system, in accordance with the NIW recommendations and current legislation.

A new entrance was designed for access from the Ballynahinch Road and the site was finished with car parking and landscaping. (Photographs courtesy of Maghera Developments & Orthoderm)
