Kier to deliver three-year capital works programme at UHB

Kier has been appointed by the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust (UHB) to deliver a three-year programme of capital works, with the aim of achieving ‘a modern, contemporary, and clinically efficient, estate by 2026’.

The construction and infrastructure specialist said: “Following the success of the £97 m Heartlands treatment centre, we will be working with UHB to play a lead role in the formulation, development, and implementation of the Trust’s estate strategy in support of its clinical and operational service strategies across all its sites.”

UHB’s extensive estate includes Good Hope Hospital, Heartlands Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and Solihull Hospital. The programme includes development of the Princess of Wales Maternity Unit at Heartlands Hospital, with upgrades to inpatient accommodation and major medical equipment and ongoing minor works and maintenance.  Works to the Maternity Unit include development of the Maternity Assessment Centre and scanning facilities, induction suite, alterations to delivery rooms, and a new bereavement zone.  Existing inpatient ward facilities will be enhanced to include create en-suite facilities, alongside replacement fire doors, firestopping works, lift refurbishments, and improved access to plant rooms.” 

Tony Shenton, Regional director, Kier Construction Eastern & Midlands (pictured), said: “Our extensive experience of creating state-of-the-art healthcare buildings will allow us to deliver upgrades that have an immediate impact on the quality of community healthcare. We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with the Trust, and supporting it to deliver excellent care for the community.”
