PROJECT WIN: MMUH
The new Midland University Metropolitan Hospital will provide state-of-the-art treatment and care for patients across Sandwell and the West Birmingham region. Due to open to the public in 2022, the 670 bed facility will offer maternity, children’s and inpatient adult facilities to half a million people.
In 2019 Balfour Beatty was awarded the £267 million Midland Metropolitan University Hospital contract on behalf of Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust.
Having been appointed to deliver the early works contract in 2018, Balfour Beatty then began the main construction works to the 80,000 square metre hospital including the completion of the external façade, and all associated mechanical, electrical and plumbing services,
Unitrunk was delighted to be selected as the cable management provider, forming an integral part of the supply chain tasked with the development of the flagship building. Their extensive distribution network and resulting product accessibility made them the natural choice for the project by M&E contractors BST Electrical Ltd., Electra and Midwest.
BST Electrical Ltd. Managing Director, David Fahey comments:
