Gleeds is carrying out work on three so-called Rainbow hospitals in North Wales which are expected to open next week.

The firm is project and cost manager at all three jobs which will see 1,000 beds made available for patients with coronavirus.

The hospital in Bangor will have 250 beds

The sites at Bangor, Deeside and Llandudno are being built for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

Neil Bradshaw, head of capital development for the board, said: “We have been hugely impressed by the herculean efforts of the supply chain and are incredibly grateful to Gleeds for their flexibility and skill in getting us to this point so quickly, without impacting on the progress of ongoing developments.”

The schemes in Deeside and Bangor are being built by Vinci, which is leading the Integrated Health Projects team – its joint venture with Sir Robert McAlpine – while the job in Llandudno is being built by Conwy Council and local firms Pen Y Bryn Joinery and JRS Mechanical.

Gleeds said its unrelated schemes for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board at North Denbighshire Community Hospital at Rhyl and the Ablett Unit redevelopment at Glan Clwyd Hospital, south of the seaside town, are continuing.

Building has launched its Proud to Help campaign to highlight all the work construction is doing to support the country’s public services, critical works and supply chains, as well as setting it back on the road to recovery.
