At the start of the month, an OJEU notice was released for a £13m early works contract for the Midland Metropolitan Hospital project in Smethwick in the West Midlands.
The project is currently looking for a contractor to continue the work that Carillion had started. Works have been on hold since January 2018, when the construction giant went bust during its £297m contract.
The hospital, which will have 670 beds, is being created to replace large parts of Sandwell Hospital and City Hospital in Birmingham, and completion is due in 2022.
Client Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust published the notice noting that both parties want to work with an experienced construction company that can “undertake various protective and dilapidation works designed to protect the site as far as possible until a replacement construction contractor is appointed”.
The notice has also added that the “Trust is considering its options for the completion of the construction of the hospital and that will be the subject of a separate procurement.”
The winning contractor will work with a subcontracting team, which has already been agreed and consists of MJ Gallagher Contractors, Novum Structures UK, Prater, Dean Wilson Architectural, ETS (SW) and Shotcrete.
