G&H Building Services appointed to Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital staff accommodation scheme
G&H Building Services is on-site providing the full mechanical and electrical works at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital scheme in Grimsby.
The work sees the complete design and build of all power services for a new ‘key worker’ student nurse and doctor accommodation facility for professionals working in the hospital.
G&H Building Services was appointed by the main contractor Kier in a £2.5 million contract.
The scheme is for the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust and will see 220 properties built with 96 student en suite rooms and 124 one-bed apartments.
The development is valued at £16.4 million in total, which includes the Trust’s own £1 million fit out and contingency work.
G&H Building Services will provide a range of electrical works including a high voltage sub-station, low voltage services, LED lighting, fire alarms, voice and data, full access controls and CCTV.
Mechanical services will include hot and cold water supplies, extraction, heating, ventilation and air conditioning to the central hub area.
Contracts Manager at G&H Building Services, Neil Blunt, said: “The scheme will feature the latest mechanical and electrical services to create a pleasant and modern environment for people to enjoy.
“It will transform the on-site accommodation for key workers and meet Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust’s brief of making its living quarters more appealing to help attract and retain medical staff.”
The scheme is replacing the existing staff accommodation facility that is now over 30-years-old.
