McBains secures first contract under CCS framework

Company appointed by NHS Property Services to undertake improvements at a number of health centres and clinics across London

McBains has won its first contract following its appointment onto the Crown Commercial Service (CCS Framework).

The company has been appointed by NHS Property Services to undertake a wide range of improvements at a number of health centres and clinics across London.

The work includes refurbishing five health centres and clinics in Redbridge: South Woodford Health Centre, Fulwell Cross Health Centre, Heathcote Clinic, Newbury Park Health Centre and Seven Kings Health Centre.

Work includes roof replacement, other external building refurbishment, and improvements to floors and windows.

Health centres and clinics in Harrow, Ealing, Sutton and Merton and Richmond will also see similar work undertaken.

All schemes will be completed by March next year.

McBains will provide a multi-disciplinary design service including a lead consultant, project manager, architect/building surveyor lead design, principle designer, mechanical and electrical design, and quantity surveyor.

Anthony Coumidis, the company’s director and public sector head, said: “This contract will mean a number of primary health facilities across the capital will be given a new lease of life to improve services for patients.

“It represents the first award under the CCS Framework and is a real coup for McBains, winning the contract over 16 other competitors.

“McBains has already worked on a raft of public sector projects and has expertise in delivering efficiency savings, in particular in terms of sustainable development, which will help increase public sector savings.”

Its health sector expertise includes inter-disciplinary services to Care UK, managing the upgrade and extension of various care homes around the South East and London; work at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, including projects to remove asbestos, provide new facilities, and refurbish existing areas of the hospital; and survey inspections of various major hospitals including Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and Barnet Hospital in London.
