Keir awarded new Dewsbury Hospital Contract

Keir, which specialises in property, residential and construction services, announced a new contract on Tuesday. Keir will be responsible for a £22 million contract to refurbish the Dewsbury and District Hospital.

The project will include a refurbishment and rebuilt and will be part of the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (MYHT) ‘Meeting the Challenge’ strategy. The strategy has been set up in order to improve accessibility and safety for local residents.

As part of the new project, Keir will be completing a new build as well as a refurbishment. The work will start later this year and will consist of two different stages. The project will begin by relocating services to the Ridings building and Service Centre.

The second phase of the project will include the construction of a brand new main entrance for the hospital. Once the work has been completed, the Dewsbury and District Hospital is set to be named as an emergency centre.

Commenting on a new project, Robbie Blackhurst, framework manager for Keir stated:

“We are pleased to have been chosen to deliver this exciting reconfiguration of Dewsbury and District Hospital, which will help to provide a more streamlined service for patients. Kier has extensive experience in the provision of healthcare schemes, having secured over 50 projects through the P21+ framework in the past four years, and we’re looking forward to working closely with MYHT’s clinical stakeholders to design and deliver this transformational programme.”

Kevin Oxley, MYHT director responsible for capital project developments, said:

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Kier as our P21+ partner for the Dewsbury Hospital redevelopment. Kier have a long and distinguished track record in both hospital redevelopment and new builds. We look forward to them bringing their experience and expertise to this important project.”

It is thought that the project will be finished by the summer of 2018.
