Healthcare furniture for Manor Street Medical Centre
Manor Street is a major, £35 million regeneration project for Braintree District Council that will rejuvenate and revitalise the town centre, providing new facilities and enhanced public realm, to support an increase in services, businesses and homes, creating a vibrant destination for the community.
The mixed-use scheme will include 35 new homes, a 70-room hotel, health provision, new bus interchange, two-storey car park, and enhanced public realm, which will complement Braintree’s historic Town Hall and provide the perfect backdrop for a new café/restaurant.
The development places the wellbeing of the community at the heart, with a new healthcare facility to meet the future needs of Braintree’s growing population. The new health and wellbeing hub will be home to Mid Essex CCG’s first Livewell Hub, providing residents access to more integrated health and wellbeing services, with options of facilities including a GP surgery, pharmacy and further preventative healthcare services.
