The £20m new build hospital is on a green field site on the outskirts of Beverley, East Yorkshire. The facilities include a 30-bed in-patient unit, outpatient department, diagnostics, minor injuries unit, therapy, wheelchair assessment services and the base for the neighbourhood care team.
The hospital has BREEAM excellent sustainability rating thanks to features such as a biomass boiler and a sedum roof. At the peak of construction there were 140 workers on site. The hospital was completed in July, 2012. The main contractor was Interserve Construction.
How did Sypro help?
Using Sypro Contract Manager gave the client complete transparency of all information at all times. As an online service, the information that is stored within the software can be accessed at any time by users, which proves very user friendly for any out of hours updates that need to be made.
Having a live dashboard is also hugely beneficial for all parties, as the contractual position of the project is clear at all times. This helps to ensure all cost, time and risk considerations are concise and easily managed.
“Sypro is a very efficient and robust way of managing the contract. It’s transparent so all parties can see the information at any one time. It’s a web based so you can access it on site or out of hours whenever you want. It also gives you a live contractual position from a cost, time and risk perspective.”
Stephen Dale, Capital Programme Manager, NHS East Riding of Yorkshire
