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.

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