VINCI Construction UK, a major provider of FM and construction services to the healthcare sector has teams of employees working in eleven healthcare sites across the North West, Midlands and the South East and is working with the same number of NHS Trusts in support of the NHS and the fight against COVID-19.
VINCI Construction is directly involved, under the banner of Integrated Health Projects (a fully integrated joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine) helping to deliver a number of critical healthcare schemes to give the NHS extra capacity – one of which is the Manchester Nightingale, a temporary hospital being set up for Covid-19 patients at the Manchester Central Convention Complex. They are also undertaking two critical care units in the North West where the teams are looking to speed up the delivery of a new intensive care unit.
Meanwhile, VINCI Facilities is continuing to manage ongoing repair and maintenance of hospital wards and essential services to keep wards going, whilst backing up clinical staff and to help with the reconfiguration of other wards in the hospitals to re-purpose them to support the effort against COVID-19. This work has been bolstered by diverting volunteers from VINCI Facilities mobile repair teams, (MRTs) to support its existing facilities management service across several hospitals.
Like many other organisations, VINCI says “its employees are going the extra mile by volunteering to help the NHS directly”. VINCI Construction UK is supporting these volunteers and working with them to adapt their current role, and then help them to find the best way possible for them to assist the NHS.
