Paul Fitzpatrick, Director of Estates and Facilities at Aintree, said: “Our staff work hard to provide high-quality care for our patients and it is important that our buildings support this.
“This investment with breathe new life into the fabric of the hospital, giving it a modern, efficient and contemporary façade.”
Rob Bailey, Construction Manager for the scheme, said:
“We have a very strong understanding with the Trust, and the effective collaboration between us is a critical ingredient in the success we expect to achieve here.
“Our experience in healthcare schemes across the UK is exceptional, and the way we work means that the Trust’s people will feel involved and informed about what is happening around them. That’s very important to us.”
BAM has just commenced phase one of the works which will finish next summer, and phase two, which follows will finish around 12 months later. The design is by Day Architectural.
Funding for the work comes via regional financial allocations, via money allocated to local Clinical Commissioning Groups by NHS England.
This investment would be the latest in a long line of improvements. Since becoming a Foundation Trust in 2006, more than £175m has been invested into the hospital’s buildings and facilities.
BAM is currently at work on a number of other NHS healthcare facilities in around a dozen further UK locations. It recently delivered the new NHS Nightingale Yorkshire and the Humber. Its work in Liverpool stems back to 1933.
