Uni of Salford presses on with 60,000 sq ft clinic building

Proposals for a facility for the university’s School of Health and Society have been lodged with the city council.

Designed by AHR Architects, the clinic facility would be constructed on the 2.3-acre Mary Seacole Building car park at the University of Salford’s Frederick Road campus.

The University of Salford launched a consultation on its proposals for the 60,000 sq ft building, part of the £2.5bn Crescent Masterplan, earlier this year.

The all-electric building would provide specialist teaching and practice areas for some of the university’s most popular healthcare courses.

Clinical standard spaces over three floors will be provided for teaching podiatry, prosthetics and orthotics, sports rehabilitation, physiotherapy and gait analysis.

In addition, the clinic building would offer an accessible roof space and terraces, with the design team aspiring to deliver a zero-carbon building.

The creation of a new-build facility would allow for some departments to relocate from other buildings on campus, including Allerton Building and Brian Blatchford Building.

Those two buildings are earmarked for demolition as part of a later phase of the university’s masterplan, paving the way for a second new-build health building, according to a planning statement prepared by Avison Young.

To learn more about the scheme, search for application reference number PA/2024/0385 on Salford City Council’s planning portal.

AECOM is the project and cost manager for the scheme. Avison Young is advising on planning and BDP is the MEP engineer. Contractor Kier is also engaged on the project, working with the university to develop the proposals.

A laudable project. I hope it becomes a reality. Anything and everything related to the University of Salford is beneficial for humanity. I pray that I can contribute through the alumni association soon. Praise be to the University of Salford!
