We are delighted to share a sneak peak of one of our recently completed projects: a new clinic for renowned cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Maurice Dray.
Dr. Dray invited Lees Associates to design and project manage the fit-out of his exclusive new clinic in Kensington. The scheme provides a generous reception and waiting room, five well-appointed treatment rooms and a number of ancillary spaces. We assisted the client during the planning process, eventually securing change of use and listed building consent for the historic space, which was previously an open-plan office.
Working alongside contractors Guildprime and CAA, Lees Associates pulled together a detailed pack of drawings in just two weeks in order to meet the fast-track programme. We acted as Contract Administrator during the works, maintaining a regular site presence to ensure the highest standards of quality were achieved.
Practice Manager, Felicity Leahy, said “Lees Associates have been great to work with from start to finish. As a high profile medical clinic, we have a rather discerning clientele, however, it is important that all our guests feel welcomed and comfortable as soon as they enter the practice. This was a key objective when planning the new clinic. As we were going to be occupying a much larger space it was important to us that guests didn’t feel they were entering a sterile space but would instead feel a sense of belonging. Lees Associates and the team were very conscientious to our needs and beautifully designed our clinic to our specifications and with elegance. Our guests have been delighted with our new home.”
Andrew Paulson, Lees Associates’ partner, concludes “it has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Dray and his team to help create this fabulous new clinic, which provides state-of-the-art facilities and much-needed space as their business continues to grow.”
