Kier, a leading provider of construction and infrastructure services, has been appointed by the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a £97.1m project at Heartlands Hospital.
The project, a new Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics Centre (ACAD), has been procured through the P22 framework. It will include the construction of a new 18,000m² four-storey building that upon completion will provide a number of first-class facilities for the hospital, including 120 consultation rooms, 26 specialist audiology and ear, nose and throat rooms, ultrasound and X-ray rooms, as well as CT and MRI scanners.
The new ACAD building will care for half a million patients per year and has been designed to provide a modern, spacious environment purpose-built to meet the needs of patients, with dementia friendly and accessible design features.
Works are due to start on site in summer 2020, with the project due for completion in 2022.
Mark Pausey, managing director at Kier Regional Building Central, said:
“The new facility will provide patients first-class facilities and modernised healthcare services. We have a breadth of experience in successfully delivering projects through the P22 framework and have worked with NHS Trusts across the country, we look forward to bringing this expertise to the project.”
This award win reinforces Kier’s position as a leading provider of healthcare facilities. It is currently on site delivering the transformation programme at Heatherwood Hospital. The £98m programme will provide first-class facilities for Ascot and the surrounding area with the site set to specialist in planned, non-emergency procedures.
