On Friday 6th March, R G Carter hosted a topping out ceremony at Mildenhall Hub.

Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and MP for West Suffolk, Matt Hancock joined project partners including staff and students from Mildenhall College Academy, and R G Carter, for the topping out with a tree planting ceremony marking the next phase of the project.

MP Matt Hancock said: “This is a unique and ambitious project, designed to benefit local residents now and into the future by delivering modern facilities shaped to their needs. Not only that, it represents a new and better way of integrated working, a blueprint for others to follow and one that I am proud to say is happening here in West Suffolk. I am delighted to see the advances that have been made and to celebrate with the various partner organisations, this next stage of the Hub’s construction.”

Leader of West Suffolk Council, Cllr John Griffiths said: “The Mildenhall Hub is a trailblazing project. It is bold, exciting and visionary – and it has residents at its heart.”

Once complete, Mildenhall Hub is set to be a national exemplar bringing together a new school, leisure facilities, a health centre, library, advice functions and a children’s centre, and will also house desk space for Suffolk Police, West Suffolk Council, Suffolk County Council and the NHS, including Public Health England.

James Wilson, Director at R G Carter said: “After months of building, the topping-out ceremony allows us to welcome staff and key stakeholders to view the building and the various spaces created, and to thank everyone involved. It has been a fantastic experience for R G Carter to work on such a forward-thinking project that will make a real difference to the local community.”
