The new Swinton Gateway Centre has opened its doors to the public.
The new Gateway Centre which is funded by Salford Clinical Commissioning Group in partnership with Salford City Council, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Salford Community Leisure, will bring key services together under one roof, including:
Services that are now up and running include the relocated Swinton Library, along with the children's centre and customer services. Other services, including health, will follow over the next few months, with an official opening in September.
Urban Vision – Capita’s partnership with Salford City Council – provided architectural; landscape design; project management; quantity surveying; CDMC; building surveying; mechanical & electrical engineering and structural engineering services on the regeneration of the former Crompton House which saw it transformed from an uninspiring 1960s office building into a state of the art community hub.
How the transformation took shape:
Peter Openshaw, Operations Director, Urban Vision, said: “Urban Vision is delighted to be involved in the delivery of this outstanding facility that brings together essential public services in Swinton. The design has completely regenerated the existing building and we hope that on site staff, customers and the wider community really enjoy the modern, user friendly and welcoming environment this building creates”.
The project was delivered by Kier Construction.
