Interserve Group Limited, the international support services, construction and equipment group, secured contracts worth more than £92 million in June.
Interserve Construction secured a number of contracts with the Department of Health through several NHS Foundation Trusts in West Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Lancashire and Teesside.
Several of these projects were in support of the NHS’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They included the creation of new intensive care units, decontamination facilities and a significant contract to reconfigure and upgrade existing operating theatres in preparation for the reinstatement of routine surgery following the initial stage of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Interserve Construction expects further operating theatres will be required across the UK over the next 12 months. The NHS Confederation estimates that there will be more than nine million patients awaiting surgery which had to be deferred during the Coronavirus crisis.
This will require a significant investment by the NHS to expand it operating theatre capacity.
Elsewhere, Interserve Construction has secured new business from local authority clients seeking to improve their local highways infrastructure, deliver framework projects with utility companies and new school developments.
Most recently, Interserve was appointed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to deliver the £11m Hessle Foreshore Tidal Defence Scheme to create a new 700-metre long, permanent tidal defence adjacent to the Humber Estuary. The works will provide protection to low-lying properties near the Hessle foreshore from flooding in the future.
Paul Gandy, Managing Director, Interserve Construction, said: “In these tough times, with COVID-19 continuing to dampen the UK economy, our June figures are very encouraging. It is a real testament to the relationships we have with our partners in healthcare, education and the wider public sector, underscored by our capability to deliver on these projects, that we continue to win new business.
“Our new business pipeline remains strong and lays solid foundations for Interserve Construction as we emerge from the COVID-19 lockdown.”
