Morgan Sindall Construction has been appointed to create a new Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) at St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping.

Procured under the ProCure 23 (P23) framework for the design and construction of NHS capital projects, the CDC is the main aspect of three streams of work the tier one contractor is delivering for The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT). This phase of the project is to be completed in 2025, with plans for further services on the site to be confirmed. This will significantly improve access to important healthcare equipment and skills, shortening the amount of travel time for NHS patients in the area. In phase one, Morgan Sindall will refurbish and add an extension to a bungalow on the St Margaret’s Hospital site. PAHT has been allocated over £14m for this project, which will enable the buildings to house MRI scanning facilities as well as outpatient services.

This will be one of approximately 30 new centres in the UK, which are part of a government initiative following the COVID-19 pandemic to move diagnostics out of acute hospitals and into community sites to provide easier public access and earlier diagnosis. As part of its Intelligent Solutions approach to construction, Morgan Sindall will utilise its digital carbon analysis tool CarboniCa during the project. This will inform carbon related decisions throughout the design and construction phases to minimise the work’s emissions and ensure that it is as sustainable as possible. By retrofitting existing buildings rather than creating new ones, PAHT is significantly reducing its carbon footprint by avoiding the materials, waste, and resources that a new-build development would incur.
