Our Partnership with Maggie's Cancer Care Centres

As well as the construction of many of its architecturally significant centres, we’ve committed to raising £1,000,000 over ten years for the charity.

It’s more than a decade since we started working with the charity Maggie’s, which provides practical, emotional, and social support to anyone with cancer and their friends and family.

As well as the construction of many of its architecturally significant centres, we’ve committed to raising £1,000,000 over ten years for the charity. Five years into that commitment, our current fundraising total is £850,000.

Every Maggie’s centre is unique and fits perfectly into its surroundings. Each centre is thoughtfully designed to be calming and welcoming; a place to escape from the clinical environment of our modern day hospitals.

The blueprint for Maggie’s Centres was established by Maggie Keswick Jencks who, along with her husband Charles, understood the restorative impact inspirational environment and design can have. That same healing architectural philosophy continues to be reflected within its centres; from the kitchen table at their heart, to the peaceful corners, and the many opportunities to connect with nature.

Maggie's Story

Our construction projects

Each designed by a world-renowned architect, Maggie’s centres are some of the most distinctive buildings in Britain. As such they are often incredibly challenging to construct. It was this complexity that led to our initial involvement with the charity, at the award-winning, Kisho-Kurokawa-designed Maggie’s Centre at Singleton Hospital, Swansea.

Since Swansea, we have been involved in a number of the charity’s projects overseeing the construction management of Maggie’s at The Christie in Manchester, and centres at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, the Royal Marsden, St James’s Teaching Hospital in Leeds, and Southampton General Hospital, as well as the delivery of an interim centre at Clatterbridge in Liverpool.
