Ronald McDonald House Charity
One of our newest clients is Ronald McDonald House Charity, who we are very proud to have been providing Building Services Design consultancy for during the last year at their Manchester and Oxford sites.
The Charity helps families to stay close to their child in hospital while they undergo medical treatment by giving them a warm and welcoming environment where they can stay for as long as they need.
At the Manchester Ronald McDonald House three spaces within the existing Manchester house have been refurbished to create five new six person family bedrooms along with an external reflection area. These brilliant new facilities were achieved because of the unrelenting fund raising efforts driven by Steve Burne and AEW Architects: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/steveburneroom
The additional bedrooms will provide over 1,000 additional nights home from home accommodation for families with children in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. Hannan Associates are very proud to have been part of the team who donated their services for the design and construction of these refurbishment works.
We are also Building Services Design consultants for the charity’s new 62 bedroom Ronald McDonald House in Oxford where Construction is due to start soon with a view to opening in summer 2020.
The facility will provide free accommodation for families whose children are undergoing treatment at Oxford Children’s Hospital, as well as Children’s Critical Care and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) on the John Radcliffe Hospital site.
We are delighted to be working alongside AEW Architects, Ridge & Partners and Capita on the project design team. The principal contractor for the project is Willmott Dixon Construction.
