Teams featuring HKS and Sheppard Robson chase PFI deal

BDP has missed out on the chance to design a £450 million hospital in Liverpool after rival teams featuring HKS and Sheppard Robson were chosen to work up final bids.

The redevelopment of the Royal Liverpool Hospital will be carried out under PFI and is the largest hospital scheme currently using the procurement route. It had been the target of a failed bid by an anti-PFI campaigner to stop the scheme being funded through PFI.

HKS has linked up with NBBJ and is part of a team led by Carillion while its remaining rival, called Horizon, features four architects – including two Spanish firms.

The Horizon team is being headed by Spanish contractor FCC and, as well as Sheppard Robson, features John Cooper Architecture along with Madrid-based practices Estudio Lamela and Aidhos Arquitectura. The BDP team was being led by Balfour Beatty.

Royal Liverpool Hospital NHS Trust chair Judith Greensmith said: “We chose these bidders because we felt they offered the best overall proposal. We want to make sure that the new hospital allows us to offer 21st century care for our patients.”

A winner is due to be announced next spring with work starting on site in early 2013.

  • The use of the lens flare filter in photoshop should result in instant disqualification from any bidding process and the requirement to re-sit Part 1.
