Work is expected to be completed later this year on the new expansion of St Luke’s Hospice in Whirlow.
The charity is moving into neighbouring Clifford House to form a ‘hub’ for its community services.
A contractor has been chosen for the work. O&P Construction Services’ previous projects include the Royal Hallamshire Hospital Pharmacy. Councillors granted permission to convert Clifford House, the home of Gripple businessman Hugh Facey, last year.
