​​NG Bailey​, the engineering, IT and facilities services group,​ has been appointed as Carillion’s building services ​partner for the Midland Metropolitan Hospital Public Private Partnership Scheme in the West Midlands.

Ilkley-based NG Bailey ​said it will play a significant part in the delivery of Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust’s new scheme.

As part of the £430m construction and support services contract, NG Bailey will work alongside Carillion to help create the new state-of the-art hospital, which will have ​670 beds and 15 operating theatre suites.

​The firm said it has been designed to meet the best international and national standards to make it patient focused and to support the efficient delivery of high-quality clinical services.

As part of the contract, NG Bailey will manage the design and installation of the full ​​​mechanical, electrical, and plumbing installation worth ​around ​£80m, which will contain a fully digital integrated IT platform.

The new hospital will have a number of innovative design features such as a fully enclosed Winter Garden​ and​ car parking within the hospital building​.

In addition, the design and construction of the hospital will meet the highest standards of sustainability.

Construction is expected to start early in 2016. Completion is scheduled for mid​ ​2018, with the hospital opening in late 2018.

David Hurcomb, NG Bailey’s chief executive, ​said: “NG Bailey has a rich heritage in the delivery of healthcare projects, including the award winning St Helens and Whiston PFI scheme, which we helped to deliver six months early and on budget.”
