October 2006 - Hat Trick

In recent weeks, P.C. Harrington Contractors has scooped three major hospital contracts - worth a total of approaching £70 million and making the company market leader in the provision of structural frames for the healthcare sector.
The new projects are for the new Royal London, King's Mill and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals in London, Mansfield and Birmingham respectively and follow on from successful large-scale hospital projects in Romford and Coventry.

Negotiation through an excellent long term relationship with main contractor Skanska was the basis for two of the awards - at the Royal London and King's Mill Hospitals. The P.C. Harrington team had worked with the contractor on Coventry Hospital and supported them, prior to contract award, with budgetary, logistical and specialist technical advice as the designs developed and grew.

On 24th July, the teams working on the King's Mill and Queen Elizabeth hospitals mobilised on site. In Mansfield, the challenge is to provide structural concrete work for a new 95,000 sq m building and refurbishment scheme which will deliver state-of-the-art medical services.

The new super-hospital in Birmingham will be the first new general hospital in the city for over 60 years. Our work, for main contractor Balfour Beatty, involves construction of four 9-storey slipformed cores with insitu construction for each medical floor and liner walls for the linking service tunnels.

Work on the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel started on 11th September. Most clinical services, including London’s leading trauma and emergency care centre, the capital’s second largest children’s hospital and one of Europe’s largest renal units, will be housed in a new landmark 18-storey building. London’s Air Ambulance, which is based at the hospital, will operate from the top of the new building.
