Michael Hunt

Mansell, a subsidiary of Balfour Beatty, has won an £8.7m contract to construct Werneth Primary Care Centre on behalf of Community 1st Oldham for NHS Oldham.

The 45,000 sq ft centre will replace four existing GP practices and will enable a fifth to relocate within the surrounding area of the site, providing access for around 20,000 patients. The centre will be built on a site in Featherstall Road South.

The facilities will include a pharmacy, dentist surgery and specialist community-based services.

Mansell added that the steel frame construction will aim to achieve an 'excellent' BREEAM rating and plans to start construction work in July with an aim at completing in summer next year.

This is the second contract Mansell has been awarded by NHS Oldham, Royton Health and Wellbeing Centre is due for completion later this year.
