WCN Editorial Team 5 Nov 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based Interserve Construction has secured a contract worth £130m from the government of Welsh to revamp the Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, UK.

Under the contract, the company will be responsible for the refurbishment of the ground and first floors of the hospital building.

The Prince Charles Hospital redevelopment aims to enhance patient care as well as the working environment for staff by providing a more advanced and efficient healthcare setting.

The departments which are expected to benefit from the project include operating theatres, critical care, radiology and outpatients’ services.

Health Minister Vaughan Gething said: “This is a substantial investment which will enhance patient care and the working environment at the hospital.

“The hospital provides vital care for the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area and beyond, especially for a number of residents of Powys.

“Alongside the many health and wellbeing benefits this funding will bring, it will also provide an economic boost for the community through local labour and sub-contractors.”

The company has planned to commence work on the project this month and is expected to be completed in 2026.

It also said that the hospital will remain operational during this period.

Additionally, the company will also work with the project partners to create many apprenticeships for people who are involved in the refurbishment and boost the local economy and jobs market.

Interserve Construction Wales divisional director Carl Read said: “We are committed to providing social value and will be working with the local community to ensure employment opportunities and apprenticeships are created throughout the lifetime of this project.”
