Central Manchester NHS Trust seeks partners for £200m construction and estates management pipeline

Central Manchester NHS Trust is seeking partners for a construction and estates management pipeline worth up to £200m.

The contract with the trust would initially focus on the development of a sample site at the Old St. Mary’s Hospital, an area of the main hospital campus in central Manchester.

That project will involve the building of business space for biomedical, science & research and innovation centres on the site, according to an OJEU tender posted last week.

Valued at £50m, this part of the project will also see the winning bidder take on the management of the facilities once complete.

Following this, there will be a further pipeline of estate management works, valued between £100m and £150m.

Following the completion of the £50m sample scheme, the successful contractor will then be invited to work in partnership with the trust on future construction projects.

It will also be invited to manage the trust’s estate, including property development, infrastructure and utilities planning, and supply chain management.

Mace, which is acting as the trust’s representative for the procurement process, said that there is no timescale on the project yet, and that the trust will be looking for bidders to suggest how the schemes might be phased.

Mace operations director for the project Michelle Humphreys added that the company expects there to be strong interest in the scheme, which is described as a “significant” project for the trust.

In another sign that the healthcare market may be picking up for contractors, two construction firms have been shortlisted for a £120m NHS project to help Burton Hospital Foundation Trust improve the efficiency of its estate.
