Balfour Beatty Tipped to Win £20m Cardigan Hospital Scheme
Balfour Beatty is believed to have clinched the first health project to come from the Welsh Government’s ‘Designed for Life: Building for Wales 3′ national framework. The job for a £20m community hospital in Ceredigion, West Wales could start this year after a deal for the building land finally went through. The hospital, which will include a GPs’ surgery, is part of the £50m Bath House project in Cardigan, which also includes a supermarket and homes.
Progress on the major project had been delayed because of a dispute over the land. The health board said in March last year the land deal was being finalised, but it has recently only been completed. The first phase of works started in 2009 when 48 flats for the over 55's were built. Ceredigion Council's planning committee then backed plans for a Sainsburys store in March 2011.
