Dalkia has secured this prestigious subcontract from IHP, who have secured the project through the Procure23 Framework. This project will see the construction of a new facility providing maternity, neonatal, paediatric and gynaecology services, including a full delivery suite for 11 births, equipped with two obstetric theatres, a maternity ward comprising 24 single occupancy bedrooms designed for accessibility, a neonatal unit with capacity for 16 cots, and a modern children’s ward complete with access to overnight accommodation for patients and their families.

Upon its completion in 2025, the three-storey, BREEAM Excellent facility will replace the existing building – one of the oldest on the estate. This new facility will not only provide the highest quality of care but also offer a comfortable and modern environment for patients and visitors.

Tony Walker, Dalkia Regional Director commented “We are delighted to have secured this project at Countess of Chester Hospital and to help create these new facilities that will provide support to patients and benefit the wider community. This project follows the successful delivery of The Paterson Building, and we are looking forward to working with IHP and the Trust to deliver this project, further enhancing our expertise within this sector.”
