The National Rehabilitation Centre is one of the new National Health Service hospitals planned by the government. Integrated Health Projects (IHP), a joint venture of Sir Robert McAlpine and Vinci Construction UK have been named as the main contractor for the project.
This centre is to be built on land that is part of the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate near Rempstone, Nottinghamshire. Built for the Ministry of Defence by Interserve in 2018, Stanford Hall is home to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre.
The NRC will consist of clinical rehabilitation, research, development and commercial innovation, training and education. The NRC will also have bed space for up to 70 residential patients.
With the appointment of IHP as main contractor pre-construction can now begin with main construction able to start subject to final agreement from the government.
In this unique merging of MOD and NHS medical services the NRC will share knowledge together with some specialist facilities with the Defence facility. Both the NRC and the Defence facility are part of the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre programme.
Together with IHP the project team consists of Ryder Architecture, Arup Engineers and Fira Landscape Architectg.
