Working in collaboration with the Trustees of Bury Hospice, Seddon successfully designed and constructed the new purpose-built hospice. The new hospice was built in replacement of their original facility at Dumers Lane in Radcliffe where they gained their very first admitted patients back in 1991.
Using development funds saved over a number of years and the generosity of the local community, the Bury Hospice Trustees submitted plans after acquiring vacant land from Salford Roman Catholic Diocesan Trustees, a former site of St Bede’s Roman Catholic Church. Costs were successfully negotiated ensuring optimum solutions were offered in support of the Hospice’s vision of providing state-of-the-art facilitates and revolutionising palliative care for the people of Bury.
The new Bury Hospice was named Best Community Building in the LABC North West Building Excellence Awards in 2013. Designed by Condy Lofthouse Architects, the facility continues their long standing legacy within the Bury community.
During the design stages of the project our preconstruction team worked closely with the client team to ensure the right materials and equipment were used at the most cost effective price. Work commenced in September 2011 and successfully handed over in November 2012 on budget and on programme, exceeding client quality expectations. The new state-of-the-art facilities, provides an increase from five inpatient beds to twelve, and a wide range of day and outpatient clinics and services, the benefits of a model of care previously available to only a few people is now extended to all who need it.
