Subcontractors wanted for £5m hospital scheme

Local subcontractors from Kent are being invited to meet senior decision-makers from Medway NHS Foundation Trust to find out about winning work on its £5m Emergency Department renovation. Work is due to start in early 2016 and the organisation is looking for contractors who are capable of delivering renovation projects worth over £3m and have previous experience of working in the healthcare sector. Constructionline will be hosting the free event at the Post Graduate Centre at Medway Maritime Hospital, in Gillingham, on May 1. Subcontractors can meet with procurement decision makers at the Trust to find out about securing work on the refurbishment programme . There are a limited number of tickets for the event and they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Andrew Preston, client relationship manager at Constructionline, said: “These events enable local businesses to meet major buyers in their area, helping them to gain access to work in their region while helping organisations source reliable and quality contractors. “This is a huge project and a fantastic opportunity for businesses local to Medway – it’s great to see the Trust engaging with local suppliers and offering a significant body of work.” Phil Griffiths, director of estates and facilities at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, added: “The Emergency Department renovation is a large scale scheme and we’re keen to meet with businesses from around the area which can provide us with a great service. I encourage all those who meet the criteria to come down on the first of May to find out more.” The event will run from 9am until 1pm and suppliers do not have to be a Constructionline member to attend.
