Warden wins £8m day hospital project

Warden Construction has been appointed to deliver an £8m day case hospital at Matrix Park in Chorley’s Buckshaw Village.

Work will start on site next month. The facility will include two theatres, first and second stage recovery bays, a diagnostics suite including a static MRI scanner, outpatient and physiotherapy departments.

There will also be parking for 80 cars and eight electric car charging stations.

Warden has started detailed design work on the prime 80,000 sq ft plot for WW Medical Facilities and its client Ramsay Health Care UK.

The new 24,000 sq ft steel framed building is largely single storey and will be clad in a mix of traditional brick with an aluminium clad feature entrance.

The facility will integrate with other health services in the wider Preston area, and has been designed to provide a flexible building to suit changing medical practices and futureproof any subsequent adaptations as much as possible.

Following 12-month build programme, the operation is expected to create around 52 new highly skilled jobs.

Richard Kenworthy, Warden Construction managing director, said: “Once complete in summer 2021, we expect this new day case hospital to be of vital benefit and provide an essential high-quality operation which fully meets the needs of the region both now, and during any increased future demands.

“Securing this contract, despite the difficult climate, is a real testament to our teamwork. With unprecedented challenges over the course of the last couple of months, the team has really proven that resilience and collaboration are key to embracing ‘business as usual’.”

Neil Whittingham, director at WW Medical Facilities, added: “The delivery and success of this important project for Ramsay Health Care UK requires a dynamic partnership between health care project professionals and contractors who can coordinate the fast track delivery of complex medical and surgical facilities.

“Our decision to award this contract to Warden Construction was based on their knowledge and experience as a design and build contractor in the health sector, to drive as much value for money as possible to eliminate waste, coupled with their immediate understanding of the quality of the product and performance of the health care environment we require.”

The project team consists of Identity Consult, acting as employer’s agent, with Warden Construction’s design and construct team consisting of P+HS Architects, WML Consulting, JRB Environmental supported by approved building inspectors, Ball and Berry, plus planning consultant ELG Planning.
