"We are the envy of the other children’s centres… Parents and visitors have been really impressed with the building and the feeling of space and how bright the rooms are, parents have also commented on the reception and security features and fobbed doors, saying they feel confident that their children are as safe as we can make it"
Derby St. Children’s Centre
"It is truly a joy to see the Museum today, open to the public and helping a new generation of visitors explore the co-operative movement. That it can do so in a building that retains its past, serves the present, and looks to the future is a testament to the hard work and vision of its architects."
Rochdale Pioneers Museum
"...This feels so superior to your average supermarket. The team has achieved amazing reductions in carbon and gone far beyond the normal standards in retail. What has been achieved is a very thoughtful retrofit which has had a real impact on the community."
