With the government announcing that public sector funding will rescue the £335 million Royal Liverpool Hospital in addition to the Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Birmingham, it came with the positive news that using existing construction contractors is high on the agenda.
Aidan Kehoe, Chief Executive at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals commented: “The trust intends to continue working with the existing construction contractors involved, so that the construction finishes as soon as possible, maximising the value for money of the taxpayers’ investment in the hospital.”
With the revised, maybe slightly ambitious, opening of the Royal Liverpool Hospital now scheduled for 2020 it was welcome news that the wealth of experience and knowledge that existing sub-contractors have on these projects was recognised as being instrumental in meeting the deadline.
Once newly appointed main contractors are appointed, remobilising the sub-contractors who have vital knowledge of projects like these will be fundamental as they hold the keys to the success of the completion. With increasingly tight timescales and pressure for on-site efficiencies, sub-contractors will be eager to support and pick up the pieces of the project jigsaw where they left off. Zone Manager, the proven Delivery Management System provides just that solution.
