Builders and start date for new Hospice announced

We are pleased to announce that construction of our new Hospice in Denton Way, Goldsworth Park, Woking is scheduled to start in mid-September with the main works commencing in October.

With the loan facility from Woking Borough Council agreed, planning permission granted and the extensive tender process completed, our Hospice Trustees signed the contract appointing the chosen building contractors at their August Board meeting.

The appointed contractors are Reside Construction from Romsey, Hampshire. Reside submitted the most competitive bid and at the same time impressed the Trustees with their approach to managing the project. Speaking of the appointment, Trustee Chairman, David Perry said:

“Clearly our responsibility as Trustees was to ensure we chose a contractor we felt we could work closely with and which gave us confidence that their project management would deliver a new Hospice of the highest possible standards to time and to budget. We are confident we have made the right choice.”

Experienced in healthcare sector schemes, Reside Project Director, Andy Sparks said:

“We are delighted to have been selected by the Hospices as the main contractor for such an innovative and sustainable construction project. We have been impressed by the commitment of the Hospice management team and their input into the plans prepared by Hunters Architects. We look forward to delivering a new Hospice which we know will be treasured by the community for many years to come.”

Reside Construction will ensure that building work is carried out with the minimum of disruption to neighbours and we will ensure all our supporters and stakeholders are provided with regular updates and progress reports. We anticipate welcoming in-patient referrals from early 2017 to the new facilities.
