Hive Projects is leading the project delivery team supporting Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust in their ambitious plan to transform the delivery of health and care services in North Manchester and the surrounding boroughs, which is set to benefit from £54m of Government funding, paving the way for the total redevelopment of the North Manchester General Hospital (NMGH) site.
The successful £54m funding bid was made through the Department of Health and Social Care’s Health Infrastructure Plan (HIP), a major national initiative to invest in replacing and improving healthcare facilities. It will allow enabling works such as a multi-storey car park, temporary accommodation for admin staff and other site preparation activity to go ahead this autumn. By preparing the site for full development, once the blueprint and final funding for the redevelopment of the hospital site is agreed in early 2021, rebuilding work can quickly begin.
Hive Projects is working with the Trust to deliver the Outline Business Case, and the subsequent delivery of the enabling works programme. The delivery team includes Sheppard Robson, Arup, AFL, Curtins & Turleys.
This project will not only provide essential redevelopment to an estate which is in desperate need of investment but also provide a catalyst for the wider regeneration and economic regeneration of North Manchester.
