On Tuesday 4th June, our Managing Director, John Whelan attended the ribbon cutting ceremony which marked the completion of the infrastructure works for Redrow. Located in the town of Horndon-on-the-Hill, “The Shires” spine road enables us to begin works to a brand-new hospice for our client, Skye Strategic Land Laindon Ltd.
Natta has been appointed as Main Contractor to undertake the Full Design & Build of a new six-bed hospice in Basildon. Our works include Fit-Out, Groundworks, Shell & Core, Car Parks, Hard Landscaping and Drainage.
This new Hospice facility will act as a ‘twin’ site to St. Luke’s existing Hospice in Basildon and will provide essential accommodation but also extensive support facilities for both family and friends including counselling, therapy and educational areas. The construction of the new Hospice is enabled by Redrow’s new “The Shires” development where the housebuilder will be delivering 80 new family homes, together with highways and landscape infrastructure and the funding for the Hospice building. The building of the Hospice for St Luke’s will be fully funded through the development and sale of these 80 new homes.
Managing Director, John Whelan commented: “We are very pleased to be involved with this project and I am sure this new hospice will be a valuable asset to the community.”
