A new, Ł8m multi-storey car park at The Royal Liverpool University Hospital has been completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
The project, carried out by IHP – a joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine – has addressed staff needs by providing an additional 706 car parking spaces, a staff office, a reception area and shower facilities for cyclists.
Keith McGreavy, the trust’s estates director said: “I would like to express my thanks to IHP and its entire project management team. The project was delivered within budget and has been handed over two weeks earlier than planned, a terrific achievement from a fine company and a skilled dedicated project team.”
The car park is the first phase of the hospital’s multi-million pound redevelopment.
Keith continued “The car park was constructed in a challenging live hospital environment which was in close proximity to a church. Communication with stakeholders was efficient and timely throughout the project and as a result, minimal disruption was caused to the hospitals and churches day-to-day activities. I would not hesitate to recommend [IHP] for future projects.”
Martin Horton, IHP’s project manager, said: “The project team has worked tirelessly in delivering the project and worked collaboratively with the trust. IHP is proud to be involved in the first major development of the hospital regeneration programme.”
