Mansell wins NHS Oldham contract

Construction firm Mansell has won an £8.7M contract to build Werneth Primary Care Centre for NHS Oldham on behalf of Community 1st Oldham.

The centre will provide access for around 20,000 patients, and will replace four existing GP practices.

It will also allow a fifth of them to relocate within the surrounding area of the site, providing access for 20,000 patients.

Facilities will include a dentist surgery, pharmacy and specialist community-based services.

The steel frame construction plans to achieve a BREEAM “Excellent” rating, using polished concrete Rodecca polycarbonate panels, pre-cast cladding panels, and Green2Go electrical generation with heat recovery.

Building will begin next month and should be finished in summer 2011.

Local employment will play a vital role in the project through the J21 Partnership. This is a joint commitment between local business and colleges aimed at maximising construction-related employment and sub-contracting opportunities within the region.

This is the second contract NHS Oldham has awarded Mansell, with Royton Health and Wellbeing Centre set to be finished later this year.
