New construction framework launched

New construction framework launched

The delivery partners who will lead the next wave of NHS and social care construction projects have been announced.

Six principal supply chain partners (PSCPs) have won a place on the newly-launched ProCure22 (P22) framework - the third tranche of the Department of Health’s design and construction strategy.

They are Bam Construction, Galliford Try HPS, Graham Construction, Integrated Health Projects, Kier Health, and Interserve Construction.

P22 builds on the P21 and P21+ initiatives in helping to streamline the procurement and construction processes and enhance the clinical environment for users, and has been expanded to cover the social care sector.

Covering maintenance and refurbishment projects, as well as small and major capital construction work, the initiative will deliver the following strands of work:

  • Cost Efficiency Savings - enabling the NHS to deliver the savings required through best use of the financial resources available for capital investment
  • Implementation of Building Information Modelling software on all schemes
  • The development of standardised products, designs and repeatable rooms with bulk buying solutions.
  • Sharing of designs and other design information through a centralised database under the NHS Royalty-Free Licence
  • Through collaboration with the NHS and Supply Chains further develop the P21+ Repeatable Rooms and Standard Components
  • Include access by social care clients in line with DH policy

It will ensure value for money by providing:

  • The ability to respond to the emerging clinical pathway design requirements, be future ready, and provide for flexible service models
  • Efficient and economical management control of change mid-process
  • A fast-track start without OJEU or legal fees being incurred
  • The ability to achieve programme delivery to schedule
  • Cost certainty in advance of construction
  • Reduced risk of clinical incident and minimal clinical impact
  • Reduced risk of H&S failures impacting on patients, visitors, staff or contractors.
  • Reduced litigatin risk. There was no litigation on P21 or P21+
  • Royalty-free access to earlier designs
  • Competitively-tendered rates and margins as agreed at the outset of framwork, covering rates and margins

Commenting on its inclusion in the P22 framework, Keith Hayes, healthcare director at GRAHAM Construction, said: “With the P22 framework focusing on quality, value, cost certainty, collaboration, standardisation, and a drive for efficiency savings, we are confident that the knowledge and experience gained from our extensive ongoing healthcare portfolio will help further enhance its outcomes.

“The combination of the GRAHAM regional office network, carefully-assembled specialist supply chain members, BIM focus, and extensive experience across the full spectrum of healthcare facilities means we will be able to help NHS clients successfully deliver improvements across their estates and ultimately contribute to optimum outcomes for patients and staff.”

And Keith Rayner, framework director at Bam Construction, added: “As leaders in digital design, construction, and FM we take a holistic approach to delivering healthcare facilities that will work operate efficiently and be easy to manage throughout their entire lifecycle

“This culture and our integrated partnering approach is a strong fit for the values and needs of the framework.”
