Kier Construction has bagged five major healthcare projects, including the largest hospital project to be let under the ProCure 21+ framework.
The firm this morning revealed it is preferred bidder for a £160m contract to design and build a new critical treatment hospital for Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on land north of Junction 7 of the M3.
The new 45,000 sq m campus will be built to the west of Basingstoke and includes a new cancer treatment centre and critical pathology laboratories, with work planned to start on site in April 2016.
Architects Stride Treglown and Hassells have submitted a planning application for the new purpose-built hospital, which is being developed as a BIM level 2 project.
Mechanical and electrical engineer Hoare Lea has used the three-stage ‘Be Lean, Be Clean, Be Green’ approach to ensure the energy requirements are passively reduced before the introduction of energy using systems.
Kier has also won a £25m contract to upgrade three hospitals in Boston, Grantham and Lincoln for United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, as part of the Trust’s strategy to modernise hospitals in the region, thereby supporting new models of clinical practice.
Work has started on site and is expected to complete by March 2016.
It will also reconfigure and refurbish Dewsbury and District Hospital for the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust under a deal worth up to £22m.
This will allow the hospital to bring together all the services it currently provides into the existing Ridings building and Service Centre.
Also Kier has been appointed by two NHS Trusts as principal supply chain partner through the ProCure 21+ framework.
For Wye Valley NHS Trust it will deliver a £40m programme of reconfiguration works at Hereford County Hospital. The partnership will support the Trust’s clinical services strategy by increasing capacity at the hospital.
Kier will also deliver Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s future estates strategy.
The first phase of this programme of works is the delivery of a new Children’s, Young People & Families’ project providing adolescent in-patient beds, a psychiatric intensive care unit and an in-patient perinatal unit.
