The 28 week programme of works included the design, management, co-ordination and completion of the fit out as well as M&E services and associated external works.

Securing a Building Conservation Award from RICS PR-Yorkshire, this Acre Mill healthcare project was also shortlisted for the MIPIM Awards.
