Bluesky Design Services are our healthcare estate partner and have been working closely with Community 1st for over 15 years. Together we have delivered over 510,000 sq ft of health and wellbeing estate in partnership with the NHS across Oldham, Sheffield, and Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.
Community 1st have worked with Bluesky Design Services on over 21 new build primary care facilities. The design of these buildings allows maximum future flexibility, enabling straightforward adaptations of the space. Bluesky continue to support ongoing smaller variation projects as services evolve, including bringing additional health services into centres.
Bluesky Design Services have a strong design portfolio across the healthcare sector. Projects range from new build design of large community based primary care facilities and acute hospitals as well as mixed-use wellbeing centres through to refurbishment and remodelling of small GP practices.
Director Alison Quinn leads the design team. Alison has over 20 years’ experience leading architectural design projects across the healthcare and other sectors. Our long-term partnership approach to working together with the Bluesky design team ensures we deliver service-led, patient-orientated design solutions matched to a commissioner’s service strategy.
Alison Quinn, Director, said: “We understand from the beginning of our long working relationship that adaptable design solutions were a priority for all stakeholders. Working together over the years we have seen the buildings evolve and adapt to changing needs, which prove the original designs delivered the right solutions.”
