Shopping centre offices transformed into modern sexual health clinic


Work completed on refurbishment of Haymarket Shopping Centre, Leicester

Work has been carried out to transform the first floor of a Leicester shopping centre into a state-of-the-art sexual health clinic.

J Tomlinson has finished work on the refurbishment of the disused upper floor of the Haymarket Shopping Centre for Leicester City Council.

This is the first project the building company has completed since being awarded a place on the local authority’s construction framework in April 2018.

The five-and-a-half-month revamp saw the transformation of the offices into a base for the council’s sexual health service.

The facility includes consultation and procedure rooms, offices, a waiting room, and staff facilities including changing rooms and locker rooms.

Internal and external decoration, window installations, and fire prevention works were also delivered as part of the contract.

Modern, non-institutional design elements include curved seating, parquet-style flooring, and LED lighting, which will help people to navigate their way around the new clinic.

The clinic, which has now opened to the public, will provide service users with confidential treatment and support for sexually-transmitted diseases, as well as pregnancy and contraception advice.
