New hospital in Welwyn Garden City
The Assemble Community Partnership brings together the Department of Health and local public sector authorities in Bedfordshire, East and North Herefordshire and Milton Keynes. Over the next 20 years, the partnership is responsible for a number of healthcare infrastructure projects including the development of the new local general hospital on the QEII Hospital site in Welwyn Garden City.
In addition to a requirement for energy efficiency and low CO2 emissions, the project was also subject to financial constraints. In particular, it was subject to several rounds of Value Engineering in order to comply with Department of Health budgets.
We were appointed by Mansells and Assemble Community Partnerships under the P21+ Framework to provide M&E services for the new approx 5,000m2 hospital.
The new hospital provides many of the services that were previously delivered by the QEII site, plus a number of additional services including an urgent care centre open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, outpatient’s services, ante/post natal care and diagnostic facilities.
