The three storey building is arranged around two external courtyards, allowing a high level of natural daylight and ventilation throughout the building, which contributed towards the building achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating. The ground floor accommodates a series of bookable rooms, as well as facilities to support third sector services and out of hours community use. The first floor has four GP rooms, with the reception desks and waiting areas organised around the central atrium, providing views out to the courtyards, and the activity in the main foyer below. The second floor is the headquarters of the East Renfrewshire Community Health and Care Partnership, and incorporates the latest agile working practices.
