noviniti Appointed Developer For Northampton General Hospital

noviniti is delighted to announce the commencement on site of the New Main Entrance development at Northampton General Hospital.

This project will deliver a new entrance facility amounting to 870 sqm that will provide additional and welcome amenities for patients, staff and visitors including a Costa Coffee, M&S Simply Food, Subway and Stockshop, as well as a new main reception desk, PALS and a suite of public washrooms.

The project will also include an extensive infrastructure works improvement package including landscaping, the diversion and relocation of the existing roadway and improvements to nearby car-parking areas. These works will improve access to the Hospital for staff, visitors and patients and allow for planned future developments on the site.

The new Main Entrance is due to open in May 2021 and will greatly enhance the patient, visitor and staff experiences.

Jonathan Houlston, COO, said: “We are delighted that this scheme is finally on-site following more than 2 years of planning and discussion with the Trust team – we very much look forward to working with our partners, Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust and Compass Group UK&I, as well as our construction teams at Seddon.”

Stuart Finn, Director of Estates and Facilities from Northampton General Hospital said:We are really excited to be building a new entrance to the hospital site to provide a better experience for our staff, patients and visitors. This new development will provide us with more space than our existing entrance and means that we can also offer a new range of retail outlets for people to enjoy.

“These plans have been in progress for a long time so it’s incredibly exciting to see the building work starting on-site and to be able to share the plans with our community”.

Andy Jones, Managing Director of Healthcare Retail at Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working in partnership with Northampton General Hospital and noviniti to deliver a great new space and high-quality retail offer for patients, staff and visitors to enjoy.”
