Contract brings together Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and John Laing as Forum Cambridge LLP
ES Group’s property management team has fought off strong competition to secure a seven-year contract with The Forum Cambridge LLP.
The contract relates to a joint venture between Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and John Laing – forming the Forum Cambridge LLP.
The Forum, a 360,000sq ft facility on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, will include a 90-bed private hospital let to Ramsay Healthcare; a 198-bed Crowne Plaza Hotel; a 900-delegate conference centre; a postgraduate medical education centre; a GP surgery; and associated retail units. The facility is believed to be the first of its kind.
The three-phase contract includes providing advice to financial close on plans, advice during the two-year construction period including setting up all service charge budgets, and general property management of the completed building for three years.
“Winning this contract proves that we are a serious contender with a proven track record in property management,” said Poppy Morgan of ES Group’s property management team.
