Kier has been appointed by Slough Borough Council to deliver a £3m project that includes the remodelling and extension of the community building in Britwell, Slough, to include a new GP surgery
The 911m2 building will provide an integrated approach to treating patients, with consultation rooms as well as spaces to carry out minor procedures.
Kier starts on site this month and the work is set to be complete this winter.
This appointment builds on Kier’s expertise within the healthcare sector, with other projects being delivered within the region including the £98m transformation of Heatherwood Hospital for Frimley Health NHS Trust.
Revolutionise health services for Britwell
Louisa Finlay, managing director of Kier Regional Building Southern, states: “We are proud to be delivering this important new GP centre for the Britwell community.
“Over the course of this project, we will work with our local and skilled supply chain partners and provide job and training opportunities for residents of Britwell as we look to leave lasting legacies in areas in which we work.”
Sangeeta Saran, director of operations, Slough Place for NHS Frimley Collaborative, said: “The Avenue Medical Centre has been providing an excellent service to Britwell residents for many years and it is rightly held in high esteem locally.
“Unfortunately its current home is simply too small to provide all the range of services we want to provide in a local and convenient setting; particularly due to the level of need in the Britwell area.
“This project will revolutionise local health services for Britwell residents, support those same residents with community health services, voluntary and council services together, working together, closely both physically and in an integrated way for the benefit of the local area and all those who live there.”
