The Stourbridge-based western region of Mansell has been awarded three design and build contracts worth more than £20 million - which includes a new church in Sparkbrook to replace the one damaged in the 2005 tornado.
The contracts have been placed by Prime – the Birmingham and Solihull Local Improvement Finance Trust (BaS LIFT) and their private sector partner Prime. They include a health and wellbeing centre in Washwood Heath, a health centre in Attwood Green, Lee Bank, and a community and health centre and new church in Sparkbrook.
The Washwood Heath contract involves the design and build of a new three storey primary care centre which will include a new GP practice, urgent care facilities, clinics, a pharmacy and café. The £6.35 million construction project is being built on a brownfield site and will provide the local community with state of the art healthcare facilities on their doorstep.
The £7.3 million Sparkbrook construction project includes a three storey community centre and a new church to replace the Victorian built Christ Church on the same site, which was seriously damaged in the 2005 tornado that hit Birmingham. The new facilities include GP and nurse facilities, clinics, dental services and a pharmacy. The centre will also include a library, a Birmingham City Council Customer Service Centre, a community centre, six start-up offices and an enclosed garden.
The Attwood Green Health Centre will include a six storey primary care and sexual health centre including two GP practices, clinics, a dental surgery, pharmacy and treatment rooms. The £7.3 million construction project includes car parking and improvements to surrounding roads.
