GRAHAM has secured a 25-year contract to provide Facilities Management services for a new Primary and Community Care Centre in Lisburn, Northern Ireland.
The privately-owned contractor will deliver Planned and Reactive Maintenance, Lifecycle Management and Grounds Maintenance Services at the 12,792 square metre Centre, which is situated on the Lagan Valley Hospital site.
The Centre will integrate primary and community care, accommodate eight GP practices and offer a wide range of facilities for outpatient and diagnostic services across a range of specialties to serve the city of Lisburn and the wider area.
It will replace an existing health centre in the city’s Linenhall Street.
GRAHAM will assume responsibility for FM services in 2021.
The contract will be managed from GRAHAM’s Belfast Office in Wildflower Way and supported by a Contracts Manager and mobile engineering team.
Martin Gillespie, GRAHAM Operations Director – Facilities Management, believes the long-term contract award is recognition of GRAHAM’s expertise in the healthcare sector.
“We have a proven track record in the delivery of ‘best in class’ FM services to a range of healthcare facilities, with a focus on collaboration. We have a deep understanding of the unique challenges and requirements presented by primary and community care facilities, and we will bring this knowledge in the execution of FM services to this transformative new project.
“The plans are extremely impressive, and the integrated nature of the services will bring tangible benefits to the people of Lisburn and the wider region. We are proud to play our part in this long-term partnership and look forward to beginning our works programme in 2021.”
