Healthcare & Education


Equilibrium have been responsible for the design and delivery of a large number of Healthcare Projects ranging from the provision of a new LIFT healthcare scheme at Deepcar, Sheffield for Sheffield NHS Trust (including GP practice, Dental Surgery and Pharmacy), through to the provision of new operating theatres at Hope Hospital for Salford Royal Hospitals NHS Trust. We have been involved in the upgrading and refurbishment of a large number of NHS properties around the North Manchester area for Pennine Healthcare HNS Trust.

Collectively the individual members of our team have been involved with the design and construction of many healthcare projects ranging from the design and coordination of Failsworth Primary Care Resource Centre, Failsworth, Oldham (which included 3 GP practices, a NHS Drop In Centre, NHS Dental Surgery facilities and Pharmacy), the provision of Sure Start & Healthy Living Centre (The Chai Centre, Burnley), the upgrading / refurbishment of numerous mental health wards at Stepping Hill, Tameside and Trafford hospitals, as well as numerous schemes for the remodelling / refurbishment of numerous health centres for local NHS Trusts.

Equilibrium Architects have the proven healthcare knowledge and technical knowhow to assist with any healthcare project that you may be involved with and are included on the Approved list of Consultants for the North West Consortium of NHS Trusts.


Equilibrium Architect’s are keen and highly interested in the development of educational buildings believing that the quality of any educational environment affects the quality of the education and wellbeing of students and staff alike.

Over recent years our skill has been to visit various premises with fresh thinking and insight and to help schools and colleges plan for the future in a phased, holistic and pragmatic way when funding becomes available.

With the above in mind, Equilibrium Architects have been involved in the design and coordination of a large number of educational projects ranging from small refurbishment schemes on a wide variety of school types (from Victorian – to modern 1960s system built schools) through to significant extension schemes on large grammar schools and Academies.
