Tilbury Douglas has been appointed to deliver the detailed design phase of the construction of the new Catterick Integrated Care Campus
The Catterick Integrated Care Campus is the result of a joint collaboration between the National Health Service (NHS) and Ministry of Defence (MoD). Tilbury Douglas have secured the contract to deliver the design phase of the Catterick Integrated Care Campus.
The aim of the project is to bring together some local GP services, MoD medical service provision, community services, mental health care and voluntary, community and social enterprise sector services under the same roof.
Improving provision for local community services
The Catterick Integrated Care Campus will enhance provision in the area by improving access to services for both military personnel, families and veterans based at Catterick Garrison and the residents of the surrounding Richmondshire area.
Procured through Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) Major Projects and Programmes via the NHS ProCure22 framework, the initial concept design has now been completed by Tilbury Douglas and partners BDP, WSP and Hoare Lea.
The next step is to prepare the site for construction by demolishing several dilapidated buildings. The Catterick Integrated Care Campus will be constructed to the MoD DREAM Excellent requirements, with a focus on sustainability and economical building.
‘We will deliver the project implementing key principles of the Construction Playbook utilising Modern Methods of Construction’
North East regional director at Tilbury Douglas, Mark Gardham, said:
“We are pleased to be formally appointed to deliver this innovative and unique facility for the residents of Catterick and the local Richmondshire area. It will be a fantastic new addition within the local community and improve access to local health care services.
“We will deliver the project implementing key principles of the Construction Playbook utilising Modern Methods of Construction to improve health and safety and quality outcomes, as well as a focus on reducing embedded and operational carbon to support the client’s Net Zero aspirations.
“As a local contractor our focus is to also maximise the social value outcomes and we will prioritise the use of local suppliers and provide apprenticeships, work experience and new sustainable jobs.
“We are proud to have developed a design that we believe will deliver for the whole community and are looking forward to the next phase of the project.”
Design concepts will now be shared with the local community
Air Commodore Houghton, director of healthcare plans for the Ministry of Defence, added:
“The initial concept design is fantastic. I am really excited by how this will enable the development of a new clinical model, which has the Defence Medical Services and the NHS delivering care to the local population in a truly integrated fashion.
“The project will now move forward into the planning stage, and we are looking forward to engaging further with the local community to share our design concepts for the scheme.”
The Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s (DIO) project manager, Bob Shepherd, also commented:
“This a great example of collaboration between two Government departments, where integration will provide efficiencies and the ability to demonstrate the latest technologies. This will improve outcomes for service personnel, their families and the wider population through the NHS P22 Framework and our industry partners Tilbury Douglas.”
Design concepts for the Catterick Integrated Care Campus will be publicly unveiled at local patient and stakeholder events for feedback, with planning for those now under way.
The Catterick Integrated Care Campus expected to be finished in 2024 subject to final approval.
