Willmott Dixon to redevelop hospitals in Burton upon Trent

Willmott Dixon has been appointed as one of three contractors to be part of the STRIDE Major and Minor Construction Framework, as part of a ten year programme to redevelop hospitals in Burton Upon Trent, Tamworth and Lichfield.

It comes as the company underlined its long-term investment in growth and jobs across the region by relocating over 50 employees to a new central Nottingham office at Lock House.

STRIDE LLP is the Trust’s Strategic Infrastructure and Efficiency Partner (SIEP) and is a joint venture between Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Health Innovation Partners (itself a JV between Arcadis and Community Solutions). The partnership aims to deliver efficiency savings and infrastructure projects over the next ten years.

Willmott Dixon has been selected alongside two fellow contractors and three architectural firms to be part of the framework, which has been established by STRIDE to deliver a variety of estate works at Queen’s Hospital alongside the community hospitals in Lichfield and Tamworth.

Stephen Spall, partnership director at STRIDE, said: “We are pleased to welcome Willmott Dixon to the STRIDE Major and Minor Construction Framework and we look forward to working with the contractor on future projects across the Burton Hospital’s estate.

“STRIDE is working with the Trust in the redevelopment of its estate to ensure it better serves the clinical functions of the hospital and where facilities are surplus to requirements they are disposed of to the benefit of the Trust”.

The framework will be delivering a wide variety of works from maintenance schemes through to large construction projects across Burton Hospitals’ sites.

Nick Heath, operations director at Willmott Dixon in the East Midlands, said: “We are really pleased to have joined the STRIDE Major and Minor Construction Framework, which will help to redevelop and transform Burton Hospitals’ estates across the region.

“This appointment to the framework is a fantastic opportunity for us, as we will be able to help STRIDE transform sites and spaces which no longer meet the needs or demands of busy medical teams and their patients”.

Willmott Dixon has transformed a number of hospitals and medical facilities across the country including the UK’s first BREEAM “Outstanding” healthcare facility at Houghton le Spring with NHS South of Tyne & Wear.
