Scarborough Hospital

Client: Integrated Health Projects

Value: £5m
Location: Scarborough
Contract Period: 50 weeks
Contract Type:


A £47m contract to improve Scarborough Hospital is being undertaken by Integrated Health Projects, a joint venture between Sir Robert McAlpine and VINCI Construction.

The overall project includes the construction of a new two-storey building, which will combine and expand the existing Accident and Emergency department and acute medical unit, and the improvement of site-wide infrastructure such as the electrical systems, ventilation, and drainage.

This is the largest capital scheme ever undertaken by York and Scarborough Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Following our recent improvement works at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for VINCI, Howard Civil Engineering was approached by Integrated Health Projects to support them on this new project.

Due to the location of this project, we are looking forward to employing primarily local subcontractors and suppliers whilst undertaking work at Scarborough Hospital.

Howard Civil Engineering procured this project via the ProCure22 Framework.

A virtual tour of the new two-storey building can be taken here.

Praise from our stakeholders

"While Howard [Civil Engineering] has been on site, the team has been extremely proactive, and the site manager (Patrick Furlong) has been excellent. With this in mind, I would definitely use Howard Civil Engineering on other projects."
