An enquiry for a clinic in Swindon’s Old Town came from a client who used to live in Brighton. Dr Alison Brooks liked the work I’d done on previous not-too-dentisty dentists and wanted the same theory applying to her new clinic venture.

The Conservation Area with lots of passing footfall building provided just the right amount of space to grow into over time and also provided room for training workshops which Alison was already active in providing. Being so old the arrangement of rooms was usual and wobbly. It needed to be dealt with sensitively and in keeping with it’s age. It also was a long lease so there was a clear budget ceiling for the cost of the project.

To begins with I was concerned about the distance, but this combination of client and contractor worked so well that it wasn’t a problem at all. Alison was quite ‘hands off’ and happy to leave me to make most decisions – whilst keeping her updated on what was happening.

The exterior was renovated as well. I worked with the client’s graphic designer to apply the branding to signage and have that made and installed.
