The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has appointed construction firm Kier to deliver a new $31.29m (£27.5m) health and wellbeing centre in Ringland, Newport, South Wales.

Kier procured the project through the Building for Wales Framework.

The new centre will offer facilities to accommodate two existing GP practices and will provide several services including community services, general medical services, social care, community dentistry, and third-sector partners.

Kier’s scope of work under the contract also includes the construction of a new car park, a mobile health centre, and a new tarmac pitch that will replace the old one.

The mobile health centre will be used by the local community during the project.

The existing community hub services will be joined to the new Health and Wellbeing Centre to reinforce the services provided to promote independent living, reduce loneliness, and support wellbeing.

Work on the project site has commenced, with completion anticipated in January 2025.

Kier Construction Western & Wales regional director Jason Taylor said: “This is a significant project for the community in Newport and our Wales business, and we are pleased to be getting started on site.

“This new Health and Wellbeing Centre will link directly to the community hub and will allow for an effective integration with wider community services and create a focus for health and wellbeing within the community.”

Currently, the company is completing recladding works at Singleton Hospital in Swansea.

Kier is constructing a similar health and wellbeing centre in Tredegar, Wales, UK.

In February this year, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust awarded a contract to Kier for a £10.4m refurbishment project at Croydon University Hospital in the UK.
