Kier has secured a £97.1m contract to deliver a new Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics Centre (ACAD) at Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham
Kier has been appointed by the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust to deliver the project at Heartlands Hospital.
The new Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics Centre (ACAD) has been procured through the P22 framework.
The scheme will include the construction of a new 18,000m² four-storey building that upon completion will provide a number of 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 at Heartlands Hospital.
The building has been designed to provide a modern, spacious environment purpose-built to meet the needs of patients, with dementia friendly and accessible design features.
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.”
Works are due to start at Heartlands Hospital in summer 2020, with the project due for completion in 2022.
This award win reinforces Kier’s position as a provider of healthcare facilities. The company is already onsite delivering the transformation programme at Heatherwood Hospital.
The £98m Heatherwood scheme will provide facilities for Ascot and the surrounding area with the site set to specialist in planned, non-emergency procedures.
Kier also handed over the initial phases of Bay Field Hospital at the start of May (11 May), which saw 420 beds made available to support the NHS in its response to Covid-19.
