Interserve has been selected to deliver major multiple projects as part of the estates’ infrastructure improvement programme for St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in South London
The contract, which was procured under the ProCure 22 Framework, will include a number of major and minor works across the Trust’s estate and will be delivered under NEC 3 contract, with £5.9m of works already agreed and a further £15.45m of works anticipated.
The project represents the first major framework delivered by the collaboration of Interserve Construction Group and its subsidiary companies, Paragon, the fit-out specialist, and Interserve Engineering Services. It is the first combined P21/22 scheme secured by Interserve in London and the south-east.
The works will be delivered in partnership with cost consultants, Gleeds; mechanical and electrical design consultants, Troup Bywaters + Anders; structural engineers, Thomasons; and Sonnemann Toon, Architects.
The Trust is the main provider of local and specialist services for southwest London, Surrey and beyond, and provides a range of supra-regional services such as cardiothoracic surgery, neurosciences and renal transplantation.
Current projects scheduled include a new centralised chilled water system for the Lanesborough Wing; site-wide upgrades of substations and UPS systems, services upgrades for the Grosvenor, Lanesborough and St James’ Wings; and fire compliance works across the Tooting site.
The works are a key component of the Trust’s plans to transform and modernise the existing St George’s Hospital Tooting site, improving the existing infrastructure (particularly in respect of water, electrical and ventilation) to offer 21st Century healthcare and respond to the requirements of the local patient population in the long term.
Works are scheduled to begin in August 2019.
