Work Starts on Site at North Northamptonshire’s First Macmillan Cancer Support Centre

Works have begun on site for the new Macmillan Cancer Support Centre at Kettering General Hospital, following a turf-cutting ceremony, which took place on 12th July.

GSSllp are providing Quantity Surveying services for this important local project, which will bring the first centre of its kind to North Northamptonshire. Once complete, the centre will provide a range of vital cancer support services together under one roof. As well as offering information on all aspects of cancer, emotional and psychological support, the centre will provide welfare benefits advice, wig fitting and signpost to other local services.

Situated within the courtyard inside the hospitals main ward block, the centre will make best use of the available space, whilst providing an engaging and sympathetic environment for users of the centre. The unique curved nature of the plan enables the building to interact with several interesting external spaces that have been created, while maintaining the requirement for a less clinical, private, and calming setting.

We’re proud to be working alongside Main Contractor, Marshdale Construction Ltd., and GSSArchitecture who are working as Architect, Principal Designer and Lead Consultant on the scheme.
