This new contract win is the seventh major healthcare business win secured by Interserve in the past 12 months with a combined value of more than £130m. Other significant contract wins include the £50m programme of works for Nottinghamshire NHS Foundation Trust and the contact to build obstetric and neonatal facilities at Glangwili Hospital for the Hywel Dda University Health Board.

The fast-track design and build project will include a complete redesign of the existing medical school building, and provision of new clinical skills spaces within the Seebohm Rowntree Building which will transform the School’s facilities at York.

A central feature of the redesign will be a new real-life, problem-based learning suite and collaborative learning space for students on the first floor of the Medical School building. Students will also benefit from close proximity to the growing Health Professions Education Unit which is at the forefront of developments in health education.

It follows the announcement that Hull York Medical School was awarded an additional 90 undergraduate medicine places as part of the Government’s expansion of undergraduate medical education.

Over the last few years, Interserve has successfully worked in collaboration with the University of York to deliver a number of award-winning buildings, including the new Piazza and Biology buildings and the exemplar £20m Allam Medical Building in Hull in 2017, another inspirational building which is occupied by the Hull York Medical School.

Professor Brian Fulton, Dean of the Faculty of Sciences at the University of York said: “We are delighted to be working with Interserve and colleagues across the Medical School and University to develop facilities for medicine students and in doing so explore opportunities for students across health disciplines to train side by side.”

John Gittins, Division Director at Interserve, said: “We are delighted to once again be working with the Hull York Medical School having previously delivered the new Piazza building at the York and the Allam Medical Building in Hull. These facilities have provided inspirational spaces to work and study for staff and students and underscore Interserve’s expertise and capability in the education and healthcare sector.

“Our work with Hull York Medical School marks the seventh major healthcare business win for Interserve in the past 12 months with a combined value of more than £130m.”
