Manchester Central Convention Complex is being converted into a temporary hospital for COVID-19 patients.
The temporary hospital, which covers 17,000 m2, will be officially known as “NHS Nightingale Hospital North West” and is being delivered by Integrated Health Projects – the joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine under the Department of Health’s ProCure22 framework.
The project has been specifically commissioned to help deal with the increased pressures on the NHS and their capacity to look after patients. Our IHP team are on site and work is well underway.
Alan Kondys, Framework Lead at Integrated Health Projects said: “The seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic is putting pressure on the NHS, their clinicians and key staff. IHP had no hesitation in responding to the call to deliver the Manchester NHS Nightingale Hospital and we are working collaboratively in ProCure22 to support this initiative nationwide.”
VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine are major providers of support services to the NHS and its people are working hard to support the NHS, its clinical teams and other keyworkers during the COVID-19 crisis.
