It is with great excitement that we took ownership of land for our new hospice in September, which means building work can start very soon.
The acquisition of the land next door to our current hospice is the latest milestone in the ambitious project to build a new purpose-built hospice to replace the current Victorian building.
Final preparations for commencement are now underway, enabling works are expected to begin in January with clearing of the land, an access road and connection of services the first tasks to get underway. Work will then begin on a 15-month programme to build the new hospice.
St Ann’s new hospice will be a complete care facility in Greater Manchester that local people can access, from diagnosis of a life-limiting illness to treatment and beyond.
There are many companies that will be working with the hospice over the project with Caddick Construction selected as the main contractor for the building work.
Also part of the team is Genr8 Developments LLP – project managers for the new build, architects PRP – who has been working with St Ann’s for several years to design the building and get to this stage in the project.
The interior design of St Ann’s Hospice’s new build will be led by Axi, who is designing and bringing to life the purpose-built hospice that is much needed by patients and their families.
Also working on the project are cost consultants Gardner & Theobald, TRP as the structural engineers and TACE as the Mechanical and Engineering consultants.
Head of Fundraising and Capital Campaign, Anne-Marie Wynne, says: “We are so excited for the construction and building work to start on the new land, it has been a long time coming! It’s brilliant to see so many people coming together after months of planning and preparing, we can’t wait to see the new build come to life.”
