WCN Editorial Team 15 Jun 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The North West business of the UK-based construction firm Galliford Try has won a contract to build the new Community Cluster on behalf of Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

The £15m scheme, which has been awarded under Procure Partnerships Framework, will involve the construction of a new facility that will offer space for mental health and neuro-developmental outpatient facilities.

It will also include the construction of a 12-bed specialist inpatient mental health unit in addition to other cross dependent health services.

Furthermore, the project will offer space therapeutic gardens, undercroft parking and a community police hub.

The project’s enabling works will start this month and the facility is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

Galliford Try North West Healthcare Lead Leigh Carter said: “We are looking forward to working with Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and providing a facility that meets the users and patients’ needs.

“We understand the importance of providing a facility that is both functional, but attractive, and we have been challenged to design and build a facility that will provide the users with a first-class working environment and deliver an excellent patient experience.”

Alder Hey Community and Mental Health Services director Lisa Cooper said: “This is an exciting opportunity for our specialist community and mental health services to work together at Alder Hey to ensure our children, young people and families with complex conditions can access a range of specialist services in a child-friendly environment.

“For our children and young people with mental health and neuro-developmental conditions, this will ensure that their needs are met in an environment that equally supports both mental and physical health.”

Earlier this month, Galliford Try’s Scottish business Morrison Construction has been selected by the University of Strathclyde for a £42m project to design and build the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland.
