Kier has been selected for a £20.8m contract by Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust for building a new inpatient facility at Dorothy Pattison Hospital in Walsall in the UK.

The contract was procured by Kier via the P22 framework.

Intended for older patients, the new unit will lead to creation of a 15-bedded functional ward and a ten-bedded dementia ward.

This facility will replace the current facilities located at Bloxwich Hospital.

The new inpatient facility will provide more flexible space for therapeutic care.

Kier’s construction approach will focus on sustainability, including use of low carbon substitutes for power, such as air source heat pumps instead of gas boilers, as well as solar panels on the roof.
