Kier wins £25m Lincolnshire health work

Kier will deliver a programme of both minor and major works over the next year at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, Grantham & District Hospital and Lincoln County Hospital.

The client is United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which used the P21+ healthcare framework to procure the contract. Kier is expected to complete the redevelopment by March 2016.

The contract is project managed by Capita Health Partners and forms part of the trust’s five-year estates strategy to modernise its hospitals.

One of the scheme’s projects at Pilgrim Hospital is the development of a new multi-purpose clinical accommodation which will enable some of the maternity and gynaecology services to be moved into the improved facilities. Kier will also renovate the site there.

At Lincoln County, areas of the five-storey maternity wing will be modernised and two further wards will be refurbished. There will also be extended car parking and improved street lighting around the hospital.

At Grantham & District hospital, Kier will refurbish wards in the tower block and put in a new boiler room.

Smaller works carried out by Kier will include further ward refurbishments, mechanical and electrical infrastructure, improved theatre ventilation, plus fire safety measures and roof repairs.

Kier senior framework manager Lewis Parker said: “We have extensive experience in the delivery of healthcare schemes, having been awarded over 50 projects through the P21+ framework over the past four years, and we look forward to working collaboratively with the Trust to develop solutions that work for patients.”

•quantity surveyor/project manager: NL3
