BAM Construction has been appointed by Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a new three storey ward block development including a new accessible link to Smith Lane, a new Critical Care Unit, car parking and roadways for the hospital.
BAM’s appointment to the £20 million plus Bowman Riley designed scheme follows a single stage tender with tough competition from other contractors.
The three storeys will include new paediatric and elderly patient wards and retail and refreshments provision, and improved access arrangements around the hospital. Special attention is being paid to dust and noise control because of the central location of the build to existing live facilities. Other aspects of the scheme include service diversions and some challenging ground works.
BAM expects to commence on site in Spring and the project concludes in Autumn 2016. The company has appointed Matthew Garnett as its Project Manager, whose experience includes Wharfedale Hospital and the complex remodelling of the live University of Hull Brynmor Jones library.
