VINCI Construction UK has been appointed to carry out the works of two multi-storey car parks at two hospital sites, a 400-space facility at Sandwell Hospital in West Bromwich and a 550-space car park at City Hospital in Birmingham.
James Pollitt, Assistant Director of Strategic Development at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust, said: “The new multi-storey car parks will give the extra capacity we need at both hospital sites to ensure that patients arriving at the hospitals are able to park easily, making their visit to us as stress-free as it can be.
“The project will undoubtedly have a huge positive impact on patients, staff and visitors to both hospitals, with environmentally friendly considerations such as electric vehicle charging points built in.”
Michael Roadnight, VINCI’s Regional Director said: “We are delighted to work with Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust and Prime in delivering these multi-storey car parks. The new MSCP’s will improve parking by creating new facilities to be used by staff, patients and visitors and we very much look forward to starting construction works”.
Ewan Forsyth, Prime’s Development Director, said: “With funding now in place, we can move forward with this important project for the Trust which will equip the sites with the facilities necessary to cope with growing patient numbers and future demand while opening up space on the estate for redevelopments and the introduction of new patient services.”
The car parks will be operational by Summer 2021.
