Morgan Sindall to Deliver Enabling Works Package

Construction News Image
Morgan Sindall Construction is to deliver an enabling works package and Multi-Storey Car Park (MSCP) and Cycle Hub as part of the total redevelopment of the North Manchester General Hospital (NMGH) site.

NMGH, located in Crumpsall, 3.5 miles outside Manchester city centre, is one of the new hospitals to receive funding through the Government’s Health Infrastructure Plan, backed by an initial £3.7bn to deliver 40 new hospitals across the country by 2030.

NMGH is at the heart of an exciting vision to improve health and wellbeing for local people over the next 10 to 15 years. Alongside health and care services fit for the 21st century, the redevelopment will provide the employment, housing and economic opportunities that are key to generating long term growth and prosperity for North Manchester.

The project, led by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust with Manchester City Council and Manchester Health and Care Commissioning, will not only provide essential redevelopment to an estate which is in critical need of investment but also serve as a catalyst for the wider economic regeneration of North Manchester. Morgan Sindall Construction has been appointed to deliver £25m of enabling works ahead of the rebuild, including temporary car parking, asbestos removal, demolition, clinical refurbishment works and a new-build 1,000 space MSCP and Cycle Hub.

In delivering the project, Morgan Sindall Construction will ensure minimal disruption to the hospital estate, ensuring departments can provide continuity in vital healthcare services for all patients and staff within the live hospital environment.

As part of the appointment, Morgan Sindall Construction has created a Social Value Plan which will provide £15.5m of return on investment into the local community. The Plan, as well as addressing the specific local context and requirements of North Manchester, will also support the Greater Manchester Living with Covid Resilience Plan.

The Plan includes:

• A specially built Knowledge Quad. Following the model’s success at Morgan Sindall Construction’s work at Liverpool City Council’s Knowledge Quarter and the University of Salford’s Science, Engineering and Environment (SEE) building, the Knowledge Quad will be used by Morgan Sindall Construction and partners including the hospital for its own community health and engagement initiatives.

• Partnerships with local schools that will support pupils with their personal and academic development to help them to make career choices that are right for the individual, their industry of choice and the community in which they live and work.

• A focus on young people, apprentices, furloughed workers, those who need re-skilling/re-training and newly and longer term unemployed people.

• Integration with the hospital and local community, supporting social enterprises, social groups and charities such as the We Love Manchester charity, to ensure the area’s diverse local population is fully engaged with the educational, employment and health opportunities available as a result of the enabling works taking place.

• A commitment to contribute to the city's net zero ambitions.
