The renovation project will include replacing the hospital façade, extending the service life of the 10-storey tower block by at least 20 years.
Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust appointed BAM Construction through the ProCure 22 capital framework.
The scheme has been designated as “essential” and is proceeding with a wide range of adaptations to meet social distancing requirements and safe operating protocols to protect all those involved with it.
Paul Fitzpatrick, Director of Estates and Facilities at Aintree, said: “Our staff work hard to provide high-quality care for our patients and it is important that our buildings support this.
“This investment with breathe new life into the fabric of the hospital, giving it a modern, efficient and contemporary façade.”
Rob Bailey, Construction Manager for the scheme, said phase one of the works will finish next summer, with phase two finishing around 12 months later. The design is by Day Architectural.
