Sutcliffe to work on redevelopment of two public buildings in Rochdale

Manchester-based civil and structural engineering firm, Sutcliffe, has been appointed on the redevelopment of two multi-million-pound historic buildings in Rochdale; Touchstones and Heywood Civic Centre.

Touchstones Rochdale, which is currently the borough’s main arts and heritage venue, has appointed Sutcliffe through the Constellia framework to undertake civil and structural designs, with a full site investigation, to create internal alterations and to ensure that the building meets current fire safety standards.

The 120-year-old Grade II-listed building owned by Rochdale Borough Council, is located within the Rochdale Town Centre Conservation Area and is on the edge of the Heritage Action Zone. The total cost of the redevelopment will reach around £5 million.

Heywood Civic Centre will benefit from a multi-million-pound transformation into a first-class arts and performance venue, designed by architects, K2.

Sutcliffe’s remit on the Heywood refurbishment project incorporates structural designs for internal alterations and site investigations, foundation and steel design for the new entrance extension.

Sutcliffe has extensive town-centre heritage venue experience, including Bolton Library and Crew Market Hall.

Sean Keyes, CEO at Sutcliffe (pictured right with director, William Baldwin) said: “Our Manchester activity has increased extensively over recent months and these latest contract awards are no exception.

“Given our experience in heritage projects, we feel more than ready to get started and breathe some life back into these buildings so they can continue to be enjoyed for years to come.

“We’re eager to continue this period of framework wins as we head into Q2, further affirming our place as one of the region’s leading civil and structural engineers.”

Established in 1985 and headquartered in Liverpool, Sutcliffe is a multi-disciplinary chartered engineering, surveying and geo-environmentalist firm which delivers from concept to completion and is a trusted name in the world of civil and structural engineering.
