Healthcare role secured for former mill building

Have your say

A former wire mill is enjoying a new lease of life as a healthcare facility in Yorkshire.

Pennine Property Partnership, the joint venture company between Henry Boot Developments and Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, has completed the redevelopment of a Grade II listed mill building to provide a new outpatient facility for the trust.

Acre Mill, a former wire mill building which is close to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, is the first major project to be competed under the joint venture. It will provide a centralised outpatient centre that is expected to serve more than 200,000 patient appointments every year.

Lesley Hill, the director of planning, performance, estates and facilities at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, said: “This has been a remarkable recycling project, turning an old disused landmark mill into a modern day healthcare centre for our local communities. It’s been a great team effort.”
