Opened to the public last September, the Houghton-le-Spring Primary Care Centre in Sunderland, designed by P+HS Architects in conjunction with NHS South of Tyne & Wear for use by the Sunderland Teaching Primary Care Trust, was the UK's first ever large healthcare building to achieve a BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating at the final stage--for best practice in sustainable design and environmental performance for buildings. One of the key elements that enabled the centre to reach this environmental milestone--it also achieved a BREEAM 'Outstanding' at the design stage--was a low carbon natural ventilation system designed by Cambridge University spin-off, Breathing Buildings. HEJ editor Jonathan Baillie reports.
