Princess Alexandra Hospital New Fracture Clinic
The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust
The Princess Alexandra Hospital Harlow is a 500 bed hospital providing a comprehensive range of services to the local population of 260,000 people. For several years Orthopaedic outpatient services have been provided off site due to a lack of physical internal space. This was a key project for the Trust to bring this important service back to within easy reach of the local population.
Following a mini-competition via the NHS SBS Framework Northmores was appointed to act as lead consultant providing a full range of construction services from inception through to completion. The new, two-storey Fracture Clinic is to be built upon the site previously occupied by old ambulance station building and social club.
Due to the urgency of the project Northmores initiated a two-stage design and build procurement approach with a Trust retained design team to act as Trust advisors/concept guardians.
