Our Healthcare Team is delighted to be involved with the £90m redevelopment of Bristol’s city centre hospitals.
Laing O’Rourke is Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP) responsible for delivery of the project, and we are providing Cost Consultancy services as members of Laing O’Rourke’s Supply Chain. Our role has included early cost planning (OBC), cost control through design development to procurement documentation for Market Testing to facilitate preparation of the FBC and Target Cost (GMP).
Our Healthcare Team has in-depth knowledge of the P21 process, as both Cost Advisor to NHS Trusts and as PCSP Supply Chain members. Our experience has ensured that we have contributed significantly to both programme and cost management.
Plans for the large scale transformation have been submitted to the city council for approval. The project would see an eight-storey block built at the back of the main Bristol Royal Infirmary to create a new facility to treat adults and children, as well as house administrative staff and a restaurant. The new block, designed by CODA Architects, also includes medical and surgical assessment departments for patients admitted from A&E and an overflow for Bristol Children’s Hospital.
The transformation project would enable University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, which runs nine city centre hospitals, to move care out of outdated building stock and into a state of the art facility.
If the planning application is approved, the programme of works is set for completion in 2014.
