Caddick completes North West's new £6m sustainable medical centre

Caddick Construction has completed the construction of Milnrow & Newhey Medical Centre in Rochdale, becoming United Healthcare Development’s most sustainable healthcare facility that will bring improved services to patients in Greater Manchester.

The development marks the second healthcare facility built by Caddick on behalf of  United Healthcare Developments, which also includes the recently completed Carlisle Healthcare South Hub.

Both Milnrow & Newhey Medical Centre and Carlisle Healthcare South Hub have achieved a BREEAM Outstanding rating, achieved through a meticulous design and build process focussed on integrated ventilation systems and a ‘fabric first’ energy efficient design.  

The Milnrow & Newhey Medical Centre comprises one single building spanning over 4,470m2 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), this building now sits proudly in the Net Zero Operational Energy Category.

Located on Newhey Road, this vital development will provide easy access to patients travelling from the wider area. Work included a secure car park for employees, patients and visitors, a paved area, lighting and landscaping to create a high quality outside space.

Paul Dodsworth, Construction Group Managing Director, commented: “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. Which is why we’re 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. 

“We're pleased to have been entrusted once again to bring United Healthcare Developments’ build and vision to life. The Milnrow & Newhey Medical Centre brings a fantastic facility for the community; it’s with testament to our expert team and the vision from United Healthcare Developments that we’re able to bring this build to the community with a BREEAM Outstanding rating.”

In the extra care sector, Caddick’s team previously completed Broomfields, a contemporary apartment living scheme in Appleton for those aged 55, for the North West’s largest affordable housing provider, Torus. 

Elsewhere in the North West, Caddick Construction’s projects include new and improved science facilities at world-leading 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.
