Case Studies

Croft Medical Centre, Chelmsley Wood

Croft Medical Centre is a modern GP practice in Chelmsley Wood by Birmingham. It is proof that skillful attention to lighting design can go a long way towards a professional and comfortable ambiance in a medical practice.
Project Overview
Croft Medical Centre is an NHS practice under contract with NHS England, serving the local community. The practice moved into a brand new building in 2015. The owners were determined to create the best possible setting for patients and staff. At the new Croft Medical Centre, this includes not only functional architecture and clean aesthetics, but also modern lighting technology and lighting design.

Our Solution
Careful use of colour, furniture and lighting can make the atmosphere of a practice feel fresh and different. It can mitigate patients’ anxiety and stress as they enter the premises. For example may the use of decorative luminaires create intimacy and soften the clinical ambience. Still, a medical practice is a professional working environment, and ample lighting is required.

At Croft Medical Centre this has been solved by combining the installation of decorative lighting products with recessed luminaires and downlights throughout. The practice is a showcase for good lighting solutions.
