Kier Appointed to Heartlands Hospital Project

Keir is pleased to announce that it has been appointed to deliver the £97.1 million Heartlands Hospital Project in Birmingham. The construction and infrastructure services organisation has been appointed to the project by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.

The project, which will see a new Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics Centre (ACAD), has been procured via the P22 Framework. It will include the construction of a new 18,000m sq four-storey building that, when completed, will provide a wide range of first-class facilities for the hospital, including 120 consultation rooms, 26 specialist audiology and ear nose and throat rooms, ultrasound and X-Ray rooms, along with CT and MRI scanners.

The new ACAD building will care for 500,000 (half a million) patients each year, and has also been designed to provide a new, modern and spacious environment, which is purpose-built to meet the needs of patients, and will include dementia-friendly and accessible design features.

Work is set to start on site in summer of this year (2020), with the project due for completion in 2022.

Managing Director at Keir Regional Building Centra, Mark Pausey said: “The new facility will provide patients first-class facilities and modernised healthcare services. We have a breadth of experience in successfully delivering projects throughout the P22 Framework, and, have worked with many NHS Trusts throughout the country, we look forward to bringing this expertise to the project.”

This is the second project that Keir is working on to transform healthcare facilities. The company is also currently on site delivering the transformation at Heatherwood Hospital. The £98 million project aims to provide first-class facilities for Ascot and the surrounding area, with the site set to specialise in planned, non-emergency procedures.
