Mott MacDonald and Archus support delivery of NHS Nightingale Hospital North West

Engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald and strategic healthcare consultancy Archus, have supported delivery of NHS Nightingale Hospital North West in Manchester, UK. Working on behalf of NHS England and NHS Improvement, project management, cost consultancy and technical advisory services were provided for the temporary facility at Manchester Central conference centre.

The new hospital is part of the huge NHS mobilisation plan to deal with the growing number of Covid-19 cases. The hospital has up to 630 beds for patients and will provide care for those who no longer need to be in a critical care environment. It will also link closely to community health and social care services, as well as the hospitals across the north west region.

Mott MacDonald and Archus were a key interface between contractors IHP and the NHS team who are responsible for the project. Exceptional teamwork coupled with efficient review and decision-making processes have been key to the successful delivery of the scheme.

Richard Cantlay, Mott MacDonald’s global head of healthcare facilities said: “We’re extremely proud to have helped NHS England and NHS Improvement with the delivery of this new temporary facility which offers much needed capacity at this critical time. The construction work and the gearing up for operation has been undertaken in just over two weeks and has been a challenging, and hugely rewarding, joint effort between the NHS, the army, consultants, contractors and the Manchester Central team.”

Richard Darch, CEO of Archus added “this is another fine example of our work to assist the rapid establishment of a network of NHS Nightingale Hospitals and provide urgent capacity to help tackle Covid-19. It is also another successful collaboration between Archus and Mott MacDonald, following our joint work at ExCeL, to bring together our combined and expert teams to address the needs of the NHS.”
