Morgan Sindall lands £19m Milton Keynes hospital job

Morgan Sindall’s Northern Home Counties business has been appointed to develop a £19.1m ward expansion on behalf of the Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) NHS Foundation Trust.

Procured via the Pagabo Framework, the project will create a new two-storey building known as Oak Wards as well as a link corridor to the existing A&E department in MKUH’s main building.

Work  is due to start on site this winter and be completed in late 2025.

The hospital has an air ambulance helipad with a flight path that crosses over the site. To ensure the helicopter can remain active, crane lifts and other planned works will be conducted in coordination with the flight authorities.

Emma Curtis, Morgan Sindall Construction’s Northern Home Counties Area Director, said: “While the development has posed several operational, logistical, and environmental questions, through our close collaboration with MKUH NHS Foundation Trust, we’ve designed a route forward that will result in a high-end and sustainable new ward.

“We’re looking forward to building on our relationship with the Trust, which has been established over the course of multiple projects, including a new radiotherapy centre that we’re currently constructing.”
