BAM is planning to start on site late this year and complete the scheme by late Spring 2023.
The contractor was appointed following a competitive process under the Government’s Procure 22 capital framework for health.
It sees BAM re-united with the Trust having previously delivered its interoperative MRI scheme and NHS Nightingale Hospital.
Simon Worthington, Director of Finance for Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust said: “This is a huge milestone and will mean we can move forward at pace to progress to a full design for the new building.
Paul Cleminson, BAM’s Preconstruction Director, said: “We are really pleased to continue our working partnership with Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
“This pathology project allows us to build on that trust and understanding that our expertise in modern methods of construction, carbon net zero and smart digital technologies can deliver a true future-proofed building serving needs across West Yorkshire and Harrogate.
“There has been a demanding programme but we are on track.
“This scheme has the potential to push the boundaries of what digital construction can achieve, so we are very excited about not only the benefits it will bring for local people but also, what can be learned to help us all improve all healthcare buildings.”
