Assessing design quality in LIFT primary care buildings

This briefing paper summarises the findings of CABE research into the design quality of new health buildings provided under the LIFT (local improvement finance trust) programme. The research is based on a survey of 20 primary care buildings built under the first three waves of the LIFT programme between 2002 and 2006. Using industry-accepted measurements, the research reveals a variable picture of design quality in the new buildings. The briefing highlights areas for close consideration and recommendations for improvement.
