Christie Proton Beam Therapy by HKS Architects
We talk to HKS Architects about the Christie Proton Beam Therapy Centre project.
Built environment specialist, Extentia Group, has completed the refurbishment of the Directors’ Suite and fit-out of the Executive Boxes and Emerald Suite within the North Stand at Emerald Headingley Stadium.
Their work on the North Stand, via Principal Contractor Caddick Construction, has seen the delivery of a full refit of 13 boxes, a banqueting suite, eight toilets blocks, corridors and the corporate reception. Styles&Wood, Extentia Group’s project management and delivery business, provided internal finishes, including flooring, bespoke joinery and ironmongery.
Extentia Group’s interior design specialist, SpaceInvader, and design-led furniture supplier, Ralph Capper, also worked on the project. The firms produced the interior design of the Emerald Suite and executive boxes within the new stand and supplied furniture to the executive boxes and communal areas. The new spaces provide panoramic views across both the cricket and rugby grounds, with the ability to reconfigure the facilities for conferences and events.
In the Directors’ Suite, Styles&Wood acted as principal contractor to an extensive programme of works over 20 weeks, refitting the suite’s main lounge, new toilet facilities, and back of house areas, including two kitchens and private dining facilities.
The concept design for the suite was undertaken by interiors specialist, Nanu Soda, with all elements chosen to deliver a high-quality, luxury finish. All internal fittings and furnishings were bespoke, with carpets, wallpaper, joinery, flooring, trims and bulkheads individually commissioned and handmade.
Chris Slinger, Operations Director at Styles&Wood, said: ‘Headingley is one of Leeds’ most iconic venues, with this extensive redevelopment setting a benchmark for luxury hospitality facilities in the sporting world.
‘This project showcases Extentia Group’s expertise in coordinating and delivering a full suite of built environment services, from M&E and interior design, right through to bespoke joinery, decoration and furniture. We’re pleased to have played a role in creating an environment that supporters will be able to enjoy for years to come.’
The works form part of the £45 million redevelopment of the stadium, which is home to the Leeds Rhinos rugby league club, Yorkshire Carnegie rugby union club and Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
