Assura wins £10m health centre contract

The group will act as investor and developer for the 35,500 sq ft health centre in Sudbury, Suffolk, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2014.

Galliford Try will be the main contractors on the scheme, with the design provided by Murphy Philips Architects.

The health centre – which will bring together health services from Walnuttree Hospital, ActonLane Clinic, St Leonard’s and Siam GP practice - will be Assura’s third Suffolk health project.

Assura Group development manager Simon Gould said they were delighted to be named preferred bidder. He added: “NHS Suffolk has been campaigning for an improvement in services in Sudbury for some time, and the new centre will not only drastically improve facilities but will also provide a cohesive service for Sudbury’s patients.”

Mark Marshall, head of corporate development and infrastructure at NHS Suffolk, said: “The need to update some of the old health care buildings in the area demanded a solution that delivers real benefits to local people.”

“Working with the local community and a professional team, we created a building design that will deliver all of this whilst at the same time also looking impressive. It will be a focal point for the surrounding area. The backing of Assura Group has turned this into a reality.”
