Work will begin this week on a support centre for York people living with cancer.
York Against Cancer has appointed Lodestone Projects to construct the new centre at the York Community Stadium.
James Gilyead, director at project managers Turner & Townsend said: “We are proud to be involved in such a meaningful scheme that will see true benefit to its users.”
Lodestone Projects MD Josh Donnelly said: “This will be a game changer for the region, with amazing people providing world class support and care for those who need it.
“We are absolutely delighted to be part of a fantastic team delivering this much needed facility.”
Called the Leveson Centre, it has been designed by Leeds architects, Fuse Studios.
Fuse’s design concept fits the brief supplied by the charity which was “to implement a design that can be a force for good. To create a space where anyone will feel at home a retreat, a sanctuary, an area to escape to where you can tackle one of life’s toughest challenges.”
York Against Cancer chief executive Julie Russell said: “With the contractors now on site, we are looking forward to having the development complete so we can welcome everyone into the new Centre, this really is a huge milestone for both the charity and the region, and we can’t wait to open the doors.”
