Balfour Beatty wins health refurb deals worth £37m

Balfour Beatty has been awarded two hospital refurbishment contracts worth a combined £36.6 million in London and Glasgow.

The contractor has won a £24.1m deal in London with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust for the external refurbishment of the tower wing at Guy’s Hospital.

The contract, due to complete in June 2013, involves refurbishing the external envelope of the building to improve aesthetics, backlog maintenance and the environmental performance of the building.

Balfour Beatty has also won a contract for NHS Glasgow and Clyde to refurbish the University Tower Block at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. The £12.5m contract includes an extensive strip of five floors followed by refurbishing three floors. 

The hospital will remain fully operational during the works, with the project set to complete in August 2013.

Balfour Beatty construction services UK chief executive, Mike Peasland, said: “We look forward to working with both NHS Trust’s to deliver this vital refurbishment work which will enhance the existing buildings. 

“Our healthcare portfolio includes  Victoria Hospital, Fife; Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham and Pontefract and Pinderfields Hospitals in Wakefield”.
