Skanska was selected as preferred bidder in June and has now signed a contract with Great Ormond Street Hospital to build the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Diseases in Children.

Bouygues has previously been lined up for the job but the deal broke down earlier this year.

Skanska’s £60m contract includes the design, construction and mechanical and electrical fit-out of the facility, which will operate as a partnership between Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, University College London and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

Completion is expected towards the end of 2018.

The contract award builds on the working relationship that Skanska has established with Great Ormond Street Hospital while working on the Premier Inn Clinical Building, the second phase of the redevelopment, which will complete the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre.
