We built one of the largest-ever health schemes procured under a private finance initiative. University Hospital Coventry provides state-of-the-art amenities for local people.
For the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust we built University Hospital Coventry – one of the largest-ever health schemes procured under a private finance initiative – providing state-of-the-art amenities for local people.
Design, build, fund
The 1,212-bed acute hospital project also included demolition of the existing facilities and construction of a mental health unit and support buildings. We designed, built and funded construction of the hospital. The hospital was created over 15 phases, ensuring it remained fully operational throughout the build.
The 152,000sqm hospital contains over 7,000 rooms, which together have more than:
- 25,000 power sockets
- 8,800 data outlets
- 3,600 telephone points
- 480 showers
- 990 toilets
- 500 x-ray illuminators
We continue to work with the hospital on refurbishments and upgrades. As well as designing and building new roads and car parks, completed projects also include major clinical works – such as the hospital’s nuclear medicine and cardio-catheter laboratories.
We used building information modelling (BIM) to help our customer visualise and analyse the project. This process helps reduce risk and results in greater certainty on cost and delivery schedules. BIM’s other benefits include using digital technologies to build customer and subcontractor confidence, from design to delivery. It does this by providing three-dimensional models that bring the structures to life.
