Incorporating a GP surgery, dentist and child health services the build forms the latest stage in a master plan for the area which calls for the delivery of 700 homes.
Designed by Holmes Miller it will be situated within the existing Pennywell Shopping centre, where 34 new homes are poised for imminent delivery.
In their design statement the architects say: “The new three storey building wraps around a central landscaped courtyard, providing a calming outlook with the main public ‘street and waiting areas taking advantage of it.
“Externally the building will be clad in a buff facing brick with pc concrete wall panels, column and beam features contributing the civic presence the building demands and differentiate from the adjoining proposed housing.”
