With essential work on the foundations for the new Defence facility now well underway, 2016 will reveal significant transformation of the DNRC site. By the end of this year, it will be possible to envisage the remarkable 21st century clinical facility that will open in 2018. All the buildings will be at their full height and on the majority the facing brick and stone work will be visible. There will have been significant progress in refurbishing the heritage assets, including the Hall. You can stay up to date on the build and hear from the contractor by viewing Mark Green’s posts here and watching the regular aerial footage here.
Just as there is now real impetus behind the construction programme, momentum is also building on consideration of the national opportunities that arise from construction having started – opportunities on the site itself and more widely. As a first step the NHS in the East Midlands will produce by the Spring an analysis of demand – needed to support a Strategic Outline Case for a clinical rehabilitation facility.
Fundraising has got off to a good start in 2016 but there is a way to go to reach our target. You could get us one step closer by donating now!
