Vinci and McAlpine sign off on delayed £45m Blackpool mental health project

Integrated Health Projects – the joint venture between Vinci and McAlpine - has signed off on a £45m contract to build a mental health facility in Blackpool.

The project was delayed in 2011 while a decision was made on resizing the scheme.

Work is set to start on the Fylde Coast state of the art mental health inpatient unit The Harbour following the signing of contracts to secure the land.  

Work is now to begin on site at the beginning of April, ready for the Unit’s opening in Spring 2015.

154 beds will be included, alongside a psychiatric intensive care unit.

IHP regional director Mark Thomas said: “We are delighted to continue our longstanding partnership with the Trust through this hugely significant contract.”

“The unit will greatly enhance the treatment on offer to patients during their much needed recovery. The combined expertise of the Trust and our team will ensure The Harbour is a leading mental health facility that residents of Lancashire can be proud of.”
