01 Nov 2022

We are pleased to announce that Lodestone Projects have been appointed to construct the brand-new Leveson Centre, a support centre for people living with cancer, at York Community Stadium, with work commencing this week.

Project Management company Turner & Townsend have been managing the contractor tender process which was sent out in the summer.  Two companies were shortlisted with Lodestone Projects coming out on top after careful assessment. The tender criteria was based on Quality, Time Management & Cost which were all successfully met through Lodestone Projects detailed proposal.

James Gilyead, Director at Turner & Townsend commented; ‘‘Turner & Townsend are delighted to be working with York Against Cancer to help to produce an outstanding cancer support centre, we are proud to be involved in such a meaningful scheme that will see true benefit to its users. Having appointed Lodestone Projects as the principal contractor, we are confident that their experience, innovative thinking and attention to detail will bring exactly what York Against Cancer are looking for.”

Lodestone Projects experience of fitting-out similar sized units includes the University of Leeds Clothworkers Central, Skipton Building Society branches across the UK and Fibre Extrusion Technology CAT A & B refurbishment.

Josh Donnelly, Managing Director at Lodestone Projects says “I am very proud and appreciative that Lodestone Projects have been trusted with the delivery of the new Leveson Centre. York Against Cancer is an important and life changing organisation which is truly making a difference to people’s lives.

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.”

The Leveson Centre has been designed by Award Winning Leeds Architect and Interior Design firm, 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.’

CEO of York Against Cancer, 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.”
