Henderson Green pioneers P21+ contracts
Independent engineering consultancy Henderson Green has secured the first two contracts in the country under the NHS' new ProCure21+ (P21+) framework, both of which are on the South Coast.
Henderson Green, which specialises in sustainable solutions, was awarded two contracts at St Mary's Hospital on the Isle of Wight and several contracts at Royal Bournemouth Hospital, both with Kier, when the P21+ scheme was introduced at the end of 2009.
The Southampton consultancy's work at St Mary's Hospital will involve replacement of the fire alarm and the emergency lighting systems and the contracts with Royal Bournemouth Hospital include the £1.5m refurbishment of the Stroke Unit.
The ProCure21+ framework is a national framework agreement with six supply chain partners (PSCPs) who have all been selected for capital investment construction schemes across England until 2016. The scheme allows NHS clients and joint ventures to select a supply chain to undertake their scheme, providing an integrated, flexible and transparent process, with minimal risk.
Henderson Green specialises in renewable technologies and the design of engineering systems for complex buildings, both new build and refurbishments, from the smallest contracts to major capital developments up to £50m and in all sectors.
The Southampton and Channel Islands based practice works for several clients in the healthcare, education and commercial sectors including University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Universities of Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester and Bournemouth, Solent University, States of Jersey Health & Social Services, EDF Energy and ABP Associated British Ports.
