Building contract awarded for UK's largest acute admission unit

A £25m ProCure21 contract at Watford General Hospital has been awarded to Medicinq Osborne. The project includes a new Acute Admissions Unit (AAU), which will be constructed off site by Yorkon in a £12m contract – believed to be the UK’s largest modular building contract in the healthcare sector.

Medicinq Osborne will also undertake the refurbishment of wards and other accommodation, and the reconfiguration of access roads and car parking at the hospital.

Scheduled for completion this summer, the scheme for West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust is believed to be the largest AAU in the country. It forms part of a £34m reorganisation and modernisation of acute services in the area. A new model of care will be employed to improve the patient experience with rapid, consultant-led diagnosis for emergency cases and treatment closer to home.
