Continuing our strong relationship with IHP at the Countess of Chester Hospital

We are thrilled to announce our latest project win with Integrated Health Projects (IHP), the joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine. This marks our ninth appointment with IHP across the country, here we will be undertaking the commissioning management role for the new Women and Children’s Building (WCB) at the Countess of Chester Hospital.

A State-of-the-Art Facility for Enhanced Care

The £110 million, three-storey facility will replace the existing Women and Children’s Building, which has been in use since 1971. Services currently housed in the old building, including maternity, neonatal, paediatrics, and gynaecology will transition to the new development. This modern facility promises increased capacity and improved rest spaces for patients, families, and staff.

Modern Amenities for Comprehensive Care

The ground floor will feature a brand-new delivery suite with 11 birthing rooms and two Obstetric theatres. The first floor will host a maternity ward with 24 single bedrooms, each equipped with en-suite bathrooms designed for accessibility. The neonatal unit, accommodating up to 16 cots, will be located on the ground floor. The second floor will house a new Children’s Ward, complete with overnight accommodation for patients and enhanced rest facilities for hospital staff. This new development aims to support approximately 2,300 expectant families from Chester, Ellesmere Port, and surrounding areas, including North Wales.

Expertise in Healthcare Commissioning

Our extensive experience in the healthcare sector, including projects such as the Proton Beam at The Christie, Royal Liverpool Hospital, Glan Clwyd Hospital’s SuRNICC Neonatal ward, Preston Hospital Ward 31 Refurbishment, and Chorley Hospital’s new theatres, positions us well to deliver this project. We are committed to providing innovative, compliant, and cost-effective services, ensuring the highest standards of commissioning management.

Neil Burdess, Associate Head of Commissioning at Banyards stated: We are incredibly proud to continue our partnership with IHP on such a significant project. Our team is dedicated to delivering Commissioning Management services and we look forward to working on a facility that meets the highest standards of care and comfort for patients and staff alike,”
