Kier Wins Contract to Upgrade Birmingham Hospitals
07 August 2023

Kier has been appointed by the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust for a three-year programme of upgrades across the estate.

The University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust (UHB) is one of the largest trusts in the country. The estate includes Good Hope Hospital, Heartlands Hospital, Solihull Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham’s first new acute hospital for 70 years.

The contract was awarded through the P23 Framework, after Kier’s work building the £97 million Heartlands Treatment Centre, which was completed in November 2022.


Princess of Wales Maternity Unit Upgrades


The programme includes development of the Princess of Wales Maternity Unit at Heartlands Hospital, with the development of the Maternity Assessment Centre and scanning facilities, induction suite, alterations to delivery rooms and a new bereavement zone. Existing inpatient ward facilities will be enhanced to include the creation of ensuite facilities, replacement fire doors, fire stopping works, life refurbishments and improved access to Plant Rooms. 

Tony Shenton, Regional Director for Kier Construction Eastern & Midlands, said: “Following our successful delivery of the award-winning Heartlands Treatment Centre for UHB, we are delighted that the trust has again appointed Kier to deliver key works across their estate. Our extensive experience of creating state-of-the-art healthcare buildings will allow us to deliver upgrades that have an immediate impact on the quality of community healthcare. We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with the trust and supporting them to deliver excellent care for the community.”
