We’re delighted to announce that VINCI Construction UK has been appointed to deliver a £14.5m contract for the construction of a new two-storey building to house a cancer centre in Macclesfield for The Christie.
The plans for The Christie at Macclesfield were approved by East Cheshire Council in September 2019 and demolition started in February 2020, just weeks before the COVID-19 lockdown.
The scheme was procured through our Major Works Framework with VINCI Construction UK appointed via a Direct Award.
The Christie at Macclesfield will transform cancer care in Cheshire, the High Peak area of Derbyshire and parts of North Staffordshire, providing care closer to home for more than 1,500 existing Christie patients a year.
It will bring together essential cancer services into one purpose-built centre delivering local specialist access to radiotherapy, chemotherapy, holistic support and information services, outpatient care, palliative care and a wider range of clinical trials. Around 40,000 appointments per year will take place at the new centre.
Jonathan Parker National Framework Manager at Pagabo, said: “We’re so pleased to be supporting The Christie on delivering this impactful new cancer centre that is set to bring essential care facilities to the Cheshire area and the patients in this region.”
“Not only does this scheme represent another healthcare scheme procured through one of our works frameworks, it also adds to the growing portfolio of healthcare projects that VINCI have delivered in recent times. Its brilliant to be continuing our great working relationship with them and we look forward to seeing the new build in action from 2022.”
Work on the cancer centre is expected to be completed by the end of 2021, with the first patient treated in December 2021.
We’re excited to see construction in motion and hope that the new facilities will have a real positive impact on the patients who utilise them.
