The Salford Bevan Intermediate Care Unit (IMU) is now almost half-way through the construction phase, and the progress of the scheme has been marked with a social-distanced ceremony to tighten the golden bolts on the steel frame.
Galliford Try is working with DAY Project Management to deliver this new 60 bed step-down care facility for Salford City Council and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. The new Bevan IMU is due to complete early October 2021 and is currently on programme.
Representatives from Galliford Try Building North West and the project team were joined by dignitaries from Salford City Council, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and the Northern Care Alliance to join in the event.
Tracy Kelly, Deputy City Mayor, Councillor for Salford City Council, who led proceedings, said: “It’s been fantastic to see the new Bevan Intermediate Care Unit progress and celebrate its construction phase today. I am delighted for the people of Salford and beyond.”
Dr Pete Turkington, Chief Officer for Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, commented: “It is great to see how much progress has been made on the site and to finally see the building take shape now the steel structure is in place. We are looking forward to officially opening this purpose-built unit to help support our patients before they return to independence in their own home.”
Darren Parker, Managing Director for Galliford Try Building North West, added: “Galliford Try has a strong track record in the health sector and we are delighted to mark what has been achieved so far at the Bevan Unit with this event. We are now looking forward to pushing on and delivering a first-class facility for Salford Royal and the local community.”
