Acre Mill has successfully been handed over to Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust after a 40 week programme.

The £5m fit out contract of the four storey Grade II listed mill building, for Pennine Property Partnership, has the capacity of providing 200,000 outpatient appointments each year reducing congestion and hold ups at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

The converted mill building in Lindley, Huddersfield provides modern and up-to-date clinical services for patients and staff. The state-of-the-art healthcare centre includes consultation and ophthalmology rooms, minor operating theatre, x-ray suites, audiology, podiatry and phototherapy facilities, Co-operative pharmacy, administrative offices, meeting rooms and a Costa Coffee outlet.

The BREEAM rated project has achieved a Considerate Constructors score of 41 out of 50 on two separate occasions as well as Performance Beyond Compliance.

John Turner collaborated with Jefferson Sheard Architects to complete Acre Mill which has been shortlisted for a RICS Award and 2015 MIPIM Award.

Stuart Jenkins, Project Manager at John Turner Construction Group said ‘I feel privileged to have worked on such a high profile and interesting project. Acre Mill was successfully handed over to the client on time with additional works being awarded.’
