Contractors celebrate health framework selection
Six contractors have been confirmed for the £4bn Department of Health framework, ProCure22.
ProCure22 represents the third iteration of the framework providing design and construction services for use by the National Health Service and social care organisations for a range of works and services.
The original Department of Health framework, ProCure21, was let following a pilot in October 2003 and expired in September 2010. Its successor, ProCure21+ started in October 2010 and is due to expire at the end of September 2016.
ProCure22 starts on 1st October 2016.
Galliford Try HPS, Interserve Construction, Kier Infrastructure & Overseas and Integrated Health Projects (a Vinci/Sir Robert McAlpine joint venture) stay on board from Procure21+. Joining them now are BAM Health and John Graham Construction, taking the places of Willmott Dixon and Balfour Beatty.
Interserve and Galliford Try have today issued statements welcoming their selection.
Over the past 14 years, Interserve has delivered more than £1bn worth of healthcare facilities across more than 250 projects, including the UK’s first Proton Beam therapy unit, currently under construction at The Christie in Manchester.
Interserve chief executive Adrian Ringrose said: “Our business is focused on delivering great patient experiences and this is why P22 is strategically very important to our long-term business objectives in the healthcare sector. Ever since the first pilot framework was launched in 2002, we have sought to deliver high quality clinical space for the NHS.
“We have been working towards securing a place on the P22 framework since 2014. Together with our existing clients and experienced supply chain, we have sought to balance the complex needs of the sector with the provision of consistent and capable supply side teams that can help the NHS drive efficiency in its capital resource allocation.
“This has involved investment in many areas of the construction process such as programme level IT infrastructure, web services and communications as well as the further training and development of our people and supply chain as we continue to deliver world-class facilities for patients and staff, while supporting the drive to create long-term value across the NHS Estate.”
Galliford Try’s involvement in the forerunning ProCure 21+ framework was a result of its acquisition of Miller Construction in 2014. As part of the ProCure 21+ framework, Galliford Try has been responsible for delivering projects such as the St George’s Hospital helipad, the new accident and emergency department and pathology laboratories at Queen Elizabeth II hospital in Gateshead. Currently, the business is responsible for the ongoing redevelopment of the Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup for Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust.
Galliford Try HPS director Omar Jomeen said: “It’s fantastic news that we have secured a place on this highly-sought after framework. Over the past six years, we have been building a solid reputation within the health community for our work. This selection is both a vindication of that strong track record and of our ability to deliver high quality facilities in the future for the NHS and patients around the country.”
