Facilitating Access to Sheffield Hospital

Contract Awards

Building and civil engineering company, Britcon has secured a £280,000 contract to improve main entrance access to Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital.


Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust has appointed the civils team at Britcon to widen access on Barnsley Road from two to three lanes and at the same time improve pedestrian facilities including lighting and bus stops.


The contract with the Trust is the second for Britcon after it secured a place on the Contractors’ Framework last year. Britcon has recently completed a £700,000 contract with the Trust to expand car parking provisions at the Northern General and The Jessop Wing. Britcon, which has extensive expertise in civil engineering across many types of public infrastructure projects, is working to accommodate the live environment to complete the project in just 18 weeks.


Ian Chapman of the Yorkshire office of Britcon, said, “We are pleased to secure our second contract on the Framework for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Due to the nature of the 24-hour operation at the hospitals we are working at best efficiency to accommodate continued access to the public and critical ambulance routes.”


Britcon is one of three contractors appointed to the four year Framework which has allocated millions of pounds to improve hospital facilities over the next 5 years. It has extensive experience working in the healthcare sector with previous projects including Scunthorpe General Hospital, Goole and District Hospital, Bradley Woodlands Private Hospital and Princess Diana Hospital in Grimsby.


The multi award winning, national business has been established for more than 26 years and directly employs over 90 people. It is currently listed by the London Stock Exchange in its latest report of ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Europe’.
