TilburyDouglas will build the £55m Integrated Care Campus, which has spent more than seven years in development and will provide health services for Army staff and civilians.
Subject to final clinical modelling, the purpose-build centre on the Garrison will house mental heath services, primary care such as GPs, physiotherapy, dentistry and charity healthcare providers under one roof.
Preparation works have already commenced on site for the start of construction in Spring 2023.
Several previously unused and dilapidated buildings have now been demolished due to being no longer viable for use.
Baden Powell House, a building with significant history for the local community and MOD will be retained on the site, and following completion of the new health campus, will be refurbished, and remain in use.
Paul Ellenor, Regional Director of Tilbury Douglas Construction said: “It’s fantastic to have received formal planning permission for the Integrated Care Campus.
“My team and the project’s design partners have worked hard to develop a scheme that the local community can be proud of. Construction of the new Integrated Care Campus will benefit the local area, both during construction through new employment and training opportunities, and for the life of the building, supporting the community with high quality health care services.
“My team will now focus on finalising the design and preparing the site for construction to commence early next year.”
