McAlpine scoops £50m health deal

Sir Robert McAlpine has landed a £50m deal with a mental health and disability trust in the North-east.

The contractor has been selected by a subsidiary of Northumberland Tyne Wear NHS, NTW Solutions, for the five-year deal.

SRM is expected to make £50m from the deal to deliver a range of minor and capital works for the body.

The deal was sealed through the Pagabo National Framework for major construction works.

A range of refurbishment and construction works will be carried out under the contract.

NTW Solutions head of capital development and planning John Carson said: “The values and integrity of Sir Robert McAlpine seem very much aligned with ours at NTW Solutions.

“I’m sure combining our technical expertise will boost our capabilities and capacity for delivering the Trust’s Capital programme.”

Sir Robert McAlpine managing director for the North-east Mark Gibson said “This is an extremely significant appointment for us nationally and locally, as it the first contract awarded to us through the Pagabo National Framework for Major Construction Works.”

Last month, Construction News revealed Sir Robert McAlpine had taken over from Bouygues on the third phase of Battersea Power Station’s redevelopment.

The contractor is understood to have fought off competition from rivals including Mace and Carillion to land the phase three deal, which has been designed by architects Foster + Partners and Frank Gehry.
