Case Study: Acre Mill Outpatient Facility
A variety of vinyl flooring has been installed extensively across a major redevelopment and conservation project at the Acre Mills Outpatient facility, a Grade II listed former wire mill building in Huddersfield.
In order to expand the inpatient and A&E departments at nearby Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, many of the outpatients departments for the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary have been relocated to the newly renovated Acre Mill which was designed by Jefferson Sheard Architects in Sheffield.
Over 3300m˛ of Polyflor sheet vinyl flooring from the Forest fx, Pearlazzo, Verona, Hydro Evolve and Finesse SD collections was installed by flooring contractors CMC Flooring of St Helens throughout Acre Mill, providing efficient and attractive floorcoverings for various interior environments with different demands and requirements.
Chris Race, Architect at Jefferson Sheard Architects commented, “On this conservation and regeneration project we wanted to retain the unique character of the mill’s former industrial past whilst building flexible and attractive interiors that meet the needs of a modern health provider. Polyflor’s flooring had the ideal combination of performance and high design appeal to create a fresh and ambient space that didn’t have that clinical, institutional look.” The Acre Mill project has been shortlisted in the Building Conservation category at the RICS Pro Yorkshire Awards 2015.
