In three weeks' time on Friday 15 April at exactly 3.30 pm, building will start on Orion.
The contract has gone to Heijmans, the company which came out on top in a European-wide tender. Orion was designed by the architects' firm Ector Hoogstad. It is expected to be handed over in December next year. The building site will be marked out by the town council on 15 April. Who will dig the first ceremonial shovelful of soil has not been announced.
