Galliford Try, one of the leading UK construction groups, announces that its Building North West business has begun work on a new £7m Intermediate Care Unit for Salford Royal, on behalf of Salford City Council.

The Bevan Intermediate Care Unit is there to provide short-term accommodation for patients under recovery following a fall, acute illness or operation. Around 60 patient beds are to be provided in a new two-storey building, which also includes a therapy garden to promote wellbeing.

The contract award follows recent successes in the health sector for the North West business, including the appointment to deliver the Alder Hey Community Cluster in June.

Darren Parker, Managing Director for Galliford Try Building North West, commented: “We are delighted to be beginning works on this fantastic new project for Salford Royal and the council. This new unit will make a real difference to convalescing patients and we are proud to be part of delivering a high-quality facility for them.”
