Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust has given BAM Construction the green light to start building a new £68m hospital.

The deal was awarded via the Procure22 Health Framework for the six-storey James Potter Building which was previously known as the Acute Receiving Centre when planning was granted back in December 2019.

Once complete the specialist facility is set to receive 90% of all major trauma patients in Greater Manchester.

BAM is now on site carrying out enabling works with a full construction programme start date confirmed for 22 February.

Day Architectural has worked on the design with BAM and the Trust and construction is due to complete in summer 2023.

Rob Bailey, BAM’s Healthcare Construction Manager said: “We have worked extensively on the design and programme with the Trust to understand fully what their requirements are, and focus completely on what matters to them – providing a high quality building in which their patients are cared for and their staff can provide that care.

“That is how buildings should be delivered, with the outcomes the client wants placed at the centre.

“We have an integrated capability to deliver facilities, because apart from constructing buildings, we also design them, develop them and manage facilities inside them.

“This insight and understanding of the built environment empowers our use of digital tools and construction techniques, and it enhances the sustainability and energy efficiency we can bring to make buildings better to use and more efficient to run.”

The 9800m2, six-storey centre is set to include a resuscitation area, five emergency theatres, inpatient beds, and diagnostic imaging, and a helipad.

Ian Fleming, North West Regional Director for BAM, said: “These facilities are right on our doorstep so we know very personally just how important they are.

“There has never been a more important time to help the NHS deliver the facilities it needs to keep people well and to be able to live their lives at a difficult time for us as a country.

“I’m very proud of our partnership with Salford Royal and the trust they have placed in us.”
