Midlands & East Anglia Premier Construction


Written by Roma Publications


Carillion works across a broad cross section of markets, which includes aviation, building, civil engineering, education and energy, as well as commercial, defence, health, justice, rail, road and utilities.

The company also provides services for Central Government projects as well as for Local Authorities.

Past works have included the installation of Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) between London Liverpool Street station and Chelmsford; the construction of five-star hotel the Yas Viceroy; and the extension of the M6, which required the upgrade of 2km of road on the A74 between Carlisle and Guardsmill.

Recently Carillion announced that a Carillion Joint Venture – The Hospital Company – has been selected as the preferred bidder by Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust to deliver the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital. The project is being delivered as a Public Private Partnership under a 30-year concession contract, using the UK Government’s PF2 model, and will include around 670 beds as well as 15 operating theatre suites.

The new hospital will also include a fully enclosed Winter Garden and car parking facilities. The building is being constructed to meet the highest standards of sustainability.

Construction work on the project is currently scheduled to take place between early 2016 and mid-2018. The hospital is due to open in late 2018.

Commenting, Carillion Chief Executive, Richard Howson, said:

“We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred bidder for this important new hospital. Carillion has delivered over 60 Public Private Partnership projects, including more than 20 healthcare projects, and this latest success reinforces our position as a leader in the PPP market.

“We look forward to working with the Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust to deliver a state of the art facility that will enable the Trust to achieve its objectives for delivering significant improvements in healthcare services for the people of Sandwell and West Birmingham.”

Carillion has operations in the UK, North Africa, the Middle East and Canada and employs more than 40,000 people across the world. Carillion’s vision is to be the trusted partner when it comes to delivering infrastructure and strives to create developments which bring lasting benefits to all their customers. The company is also the largest employer of young apprentices in the UK construction sector, with up to 2,000 apprentices in training each year at 13 training centres.
