JV wins Blackpool hospital contract

Integrated Health Projects, a joint venture between Vinci Construction and Sir Robert McAlpine, has been selected for reconfiguration work at an inpatient mental health facility at Whyndyke Farm, near Blackpool, under the NHS Procure 21+ framework.

Property consultant Drivers Jonas Deloitte was appointed to project manage the new £45m facility on behalf of Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, which funded the project with Ryhurst.

Last year, Beatty Group, Healthcare Partnership Solutions, Integrated Health Projects, Interserve Project Services, Kier Regional and Willmott Dixon Holdings were named for the NHS £4.5bn Procure 21+ framework, covering six years.

The NHS said it will save £200m in procurement costs over the lifetime of the framework. Procure21+ can be used by any NHS organisation or non-NHS organisation collaborating with an NHS organisation providing a facility with a health component.

The hospital was designed by BDP.
