VINCI Construction, associé à Sir Robert McAlpine, va réaliser un centre de recherche en cancérologie à Manchester
- A contract worth approximately €131 million
- A future standard-setting research centre
Integrated Health Projects (IHP)*, a joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine, has been awarded the full contract to build a new cancer research facility at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester, United Kingdom.
This project, worth approximately €131 million (£114 million), is funded by The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK.
Early works of construction began in August 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. They were carried out by IHP without any interruption to ongoing medical activity in other buildings, most particularly concerning the vibration-sensitive medical imaging centre.
The nine-storey, 27,000 sq. metre BREEAM Very Good-certified building is set to be handed over in December 2022. The standard-setting research centre will ultimately be home to the United Kingdom’s largest team of scientists, doctors and healthcare staff.
*IHP was created in 2003 to bring together the best expertise in the construction of healthcare facilities within VINCI Construction and Sir Robert McAlpine. To date, IHP has completed more than 170 projects worth around €1.75 billion, including the construction of intensive care, outpatient, psychiatric and social care facilities.
