The firm has been appointed Principal Supply Chain Partner to the major scheme in Truro by the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.  

It is part of a government programme to deliver 48 new hospitals across England by 2030. 

In addition to a new main entrance, the facility will house maternity wards, neo-natal and paediatric care, obstetrics and gynaecology services.  

Enabling and building works will span six years. 

Six derelict houses on site will be demolished for a works compound.

“Our goal is to deliver the new hospital to agreed timescales, solving problems as we go through the intelligent use of technology,” said Graham Kingdon, construction director (western region), BAM Construct UK.
