Sir Robert McAlpine has been appointed as the design and construction delivery partner for the £72.6m Care Environment Development and Re-provision (CEDAR) upgrade programme for the Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (CNTW).
The CEDAR programme includes: creating a new integrated mental health and learning disability centre at Northgate Hospital, Morpeth; remodelling the award-winning young people’s mental health and learning disability Ferndene Unit at Prudhoe; and reconfiguring and re-provisioning the mental health adult acute inpatient services for Newcastle and Gateshead at St Nicholas Hospital’s Bamburgh Unit in Gosforth.
CNTW Head of Capital Developments & Planning, NTW Solutions John Carson stated: “These exciting projects mark just the latest in a long line of service innovations and investment in the Trust’s buildings to ensure that our service users have access to safe, high quality care, and demonstrate the Trust’s commitment to collaborative partnership working as the route to the best results.”
Acquired through the Pagabo framework for major capital works, construction is already underway at the Northgate and Ferdene hospitals.
After the Northgate and Ferndene projects are completed, work at the Bamburgh Clinic will commence, which would include remodelling and extension of the existing building.
The work is being delivered via the project partnership with design team Medical Architecture, Cad 21 and BGP.
Sir Robert McAlpine Healthcare Sector Lead Stuart McArthur exclaimed: “We are delighted to be the design and construction delivery partner on these great projects, which demonstrate the strength of our relationship with CNTW NHS Foundation Trust. Working with an outstanding team of specialists, we look forward to delivering facilities that will support healthcare excellence for the benefits and welfare of all service users.”
December 2022 will see the completion of all works as patients are expected to be welcomed by early 2023.
