What We Did

This project will see the delivery and implementation of the Strategic Development Control Plan through the NHS Procure21+ Framework with Kier Construction as PSCP.

The appointment will see a scheme of multiple projects, refurbishment, new build and infrastructure works within the retained estate to provide both clinical and non-clinical accommodation across the Trust sites. The projects are anticipated to take place over the next 4-5 years with an indicative value of £175M.

The Trusts specialised services include cancer diagnosis and treatment, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, renal dialysis services, neonatal intensive care and paediatric intensive care. They are also recognised for their particular expertise in trauma, respiratory conditions, spinal surgery, upper gastrointestinal surgery, complex orthopaedic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and the management of liver conditions. The Trust has some of the most modern operating theatres in Europe.

The team are now working with the Trust to deliver their vision ‘committed to be a first class provider of clinical services, education, research and development’ by building a new hospital equipped with state of the art medical and diagnostic facilities whilst ensuring patients remain at the heart of everything they do.

One of several urgent schemes undertaken at the Royal Stoke University Hospital site; the £3.8M Lyme Ward refurbishment, has netted over £250,000 in savings and significant efficiency & operational benefits from utilising the "Best Practice" Repeatable Room Designs and numerous Standardised Components.  Hear the positive feedback from John Simpson, Trust Director of Corporate Services and the P21+ team:

Interior Design
The concept behind the interior design scheme was to create a contemporary interior with a crisp, clean feel. Light neutral walls and flooring help the refurbished areas to feel bright and airy. This neutral base palette is accented with fresh feature colours to walls, flooring and furniture, which also functions as a wayfinding tool to help users navigate the site. The robust design and high quality finish of bespoke joinery and IPS panelling is the successful outcome of the Trust’s collaboration with the design team, whilst the quality finishes that have been chosen reflect the Trust wide commitment to first class care.
