Health centre opens in September at entrance to Quays

Developer LPC Living has completed a 18,000 sq ft NHS Health Centre at its Radclyffe Park development in Salford.

Ordsall Health is a two-storey unit fronting Trafford Road and will provide a range of healthcare services for the rapidly rising population of Ordsall and Salford Quays. Services will include general practice, speech and language services, baby clinics, health visiting services, psychiatry, district nursing, community dentistry, dentistry teaching, podiatry and pharmacy.

The centre is part of the £50m Radclyffe Park which includes a 50,000 sq ft Morrisons supermarket, 156-bed Travelodge hotel, 79 homes and district retail centre of 11 units.

The health centre meets one of the main aims of the Ordsall Development Framework, a £150m partnership between LPC Living and Salford City Council, which sought to improve access to healthcare in addition to creating affordable homes and investment in education and community services.

Simon Ashdown, development director of LPC Living, said: "The population of Ordsall and the Quays has been growing steadily for a number of years thanks to our investment as well as other projects such as the nearby Media City UK development. With the new health centre opening alongside the retail and leisure facilities, Radclyffe Park is well placed to serve a growing community for many years to come."

A team from the Manchester office of Gateley led by Jon Mason advised LPC Living on the deal. Falconer Chester Hall architects designed the health centre, which achieved a BREEAM 'excellent' standard. Trafford Park-based Russells Construction completed the construction and fit-out.

There are five retail units remaining to let in the new High Street at the entrance to the development. Jeremy Simpson from Tushingham Moore is the marketing agent.

Ordsall Health is due to open on 10 September.
