Discussing HMS' latest appointment, construction director, John Barrow, said: 'This is an exciting project for the team to work on, given the nature and history of the existing hospital building.

'Newton Community Hospital is a fantastic example of how existing local infrastructure can be repurposed to not only meet community needs and provide much needed modern,'affordable homes'but can support the process of creating thriving communities by regenerating a site that has been forgotten.''A residential scheme that will become an integral part of Newton-le-Willows property portfolio for many years to come'
Chris Bowen, managing director at Torus Developments, continued: 'HMS was the first and only choice of contractor for this project, given their prior experience of challenging refurbishment developments.
'The existing Newton Community Hospital building will benefit from the team's extensive experience, and I know will become a residential scheme that will become an integral part of Newton-le-Willows property portfolio for many years to come.'
