Mansell wins £23.6m QEII Hospital job in Welwyn

Mansell has won a £23.6m contract to build a new hospital in Welwyn Garden City.

The new QEII healthcare facility, which will provide a local A&E, outpatient, diagnostic and therapy services, was awarded under the Liftco Framework.

Mansell is growing its work record under the LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) initiative with Assemble Community Partnership. It recently delivered the Bedford Enhanced Services Centre.

The new facility is being constructed adjacent to the existing operational QEII Hospital, with services then transferred across at completion.  The remainder of the site will be disposed of by East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust.

Work to build new four-storey facility, which will house 8,542m2 of clinical and community space, began in April and is scheduled to complete in Spring 2015.

It will also be built the BREEAM Excellent rating.

Andy Bowler, managing director for Balfour Beatty’s London new build business, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Assemble to deliver this prestigious healthcare project.

“We are committed to applying our experience and ingenuity to create a space that is safe, modern and flexible, so that the local health services can be better tailored to meet an individual patient’s needs.”
