Contractors picked for £500m healthcare framework

Five contractors have been picked for a £500m four-year framework covering projects for the NHS and private healthcare operators across England and Wales.

Interserve, Kier, Speller Metcalfe, Vinci and Willmott Dixon have been chosen for Prime’s four-year Private Investment Construction Framework, set up to deliver privately funded projects for hospital and healthcare sites across the country.

The framework, which is sponsored by Yeovil District Hospital Foundation Trust, will be split into two lots: lot one covers projects across England and Wales with a value over £10m, while lot two consists of projects below this value in the Midlands and South of England.

Interserve, Kier, Vinci and Willmott Dixon will work across both lots, with Midlands-based Speller Metcalfe appointed to lot two only.

The framework will deliver a range of new-build and refurbishment projects across the acute, primary care, community care and elderly care sectors, covering both NHS and private healthcare facilities.

Prime is a healthcare developer providing property development and design, planning, property management and property funding services for healthcare sites in England.

In 2014 it formed a joint venture with Interserve to provide property planning, construction and facilities management services for NHS trusts.

Prime chief executive Leighton Chumbley said: “This is a framework unlike any other in the sector and will bring vital sources of value-for-money private funding into the healthcare market.

“The calibre and experience of our contractor partners means we will be able to bring forward vital strategic projects for our NHS and private clients over the next four years.”
