HEALTH & WELLBEING CENTRE, ALTRINCHAM
The former Altrincham General Hospital site, situated on Market Street, was acquired in March 2015.
The old hospital was a collection of attached buildings, varying in style and age, situated between Market Street, Greenwood Street, Regent Road and Pott Street.
The new Health & Wellbeing Centre was designed in collaboration with NHS Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Trafford Council. The £27m redevelopment centred around social and healthcare integration, providing cohesive public health services, GP practices and enhanced community facilities. Alongside is the new Altrincham Library and Tourist Information Service.
The design incorporated the original façade and complemented the surrounding environment. Prior to submitting the planning application, there was a public exhibition at Altrincham Town Hall sharing our plans and vision with the local community (see our Gallery for the latest images).
Detailed Planning Application was submitted in November 2015 and approved unanimously in February 2016. Demolition was completed at the end of 2016. Bowmer & Kirkland commenced construction of the Health & Wellbeing Centre in early 2017 and completed it in October 2018.
