Ambulatory Care and Acute Diagnostics Building, Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham with KIER
University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust earmarked £97.1m to invest in new facilities at Heartlands Hospital to transform healthcare services to meet the evolving needs of the population. It will boost the Trust’s capacity to meet the growing and changing healthcare requirements of local people, with state-of-the-art facilities providing services including day case surgery, endoscopy, interventional radiology, outpatient appointments and imaging on the Heartlands Hospital site, seeing up to 1,500 patients per day.
With a construction value of £59m, Kier were given the challenge of designing and delivering the new facility, delivering on the area’s key priority for the Sustainability Transformation Plan. A key challenge is to deliver ACAD whilst ensuring that the hospital’s core business continues to be delivered in a safe and pleasant environment; maintaining the blue light services and be aware of working in and around vulnerable patient groups.
