Caddick Construction has completed construction of Milnrow & Newhey Medical Centre in Rochdale, which is set to be United Healthcare Developments’ ‘most sustainable’ healthcare facility, and will bring improved services to patients in Greater Manchester.
The development is the second healthcare facility built by Caddick on behalf of United Healthcare Developments, following its recent completion of the Carlisle Healthcare South Hub. Both have achieved a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, which Caddick says has been achieved ‘through a meticulous design and build process focused on integrated ventilation systems and a fabric first’ energy-efficient design’.
The Milnrow & Newhey Medical Centre is a single building spanning over 4,470 m2 with ground, first, and second floor levels that will be used to provide suites for consultation, examination, treatment, and meetings. With an EPC rating of A+ (-8), the building now ‘sits proudly’ in the Net Zero Operational Energy Category. Located on Newhey Road, it will provide easy access to patients travelling from the wider area. The work also included the provision of a secure staff, patient, and visitor car park, a paved area, lighting, and landscaping to create a high-quality outside space.
Paul Dodsworth, Construction Group MD at Caddick Construction, said: “Ensuring that sustainability is implemented throughout our operations – from design and build right through to the supply chain – is really important to us at Caddick. We are thus aiming to become a Net Zero business by 2040, and are committed to embedding environmental sustainability specification into all of the projects we work on.”
Elsewhere in the North West, Caddick Construction’s projects include new and improved science facilities at life science and innovation campus, Alderley Park, and the construction of Base at Manchester Science Park – ‘a vibrant science and tech community in the heart of the Oxford Road Corridor Innovation district’.
