The health centre in Coventry is part of Galliford Try’s LIFT framework partnering agreement with Coventry Care Partnership.
The contractor will demolish the existing health centre on the site ahead of design and construction of the new five-storey City Centre Health Facility. The new health centre will include GP Practices, the city’s walk-in health centre and a pharmacy. The building will be built to achieve the BREEAM “Excellent” rating. Construction of the new centre will start this month and completion is expected in November 2011.
Galliford Try Chief Executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are delighted to be awarded this contract which is reflective of our excellent track record both within this LIFT framework and also the wider healthcare sector.”
Galliford Try has also renewed its framework partnering agreement with Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership (LSHP).
The firm has been working with LSHP for the past five years and has been reselected as a framework partner under which it will undertake the construction of eight purpose-built neighbourhood health centres across Liverpool and Sefton over the next five years, anticipated to be worth £40m.
Fitzgerald said: “We have a long standing relationship with Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership and have successfully delivered a range of health projects. The renewal of our partnership reinforces our strong market position in the health sector and we look forward to continuing to provide quality community health facilities.”
