Regeneration of Gloucester continues through lockdown
By Rob Freeman | 22nd April 2020
You may not have noticed while working from home, but work to transform part of Gloucester city centre is continuing throughout the coronavirus lockdown.
Things may be a lot quieter all around but building work on the regeneration of the the city remains in full swing
Construction firm Kier is working on the £15million first phase of the Quayside regeneration plan.
The project, which is due to be finished early next year, stands on the footprint of the former Quayside House and alongside the old Gloucester Prison site.
The new building will include two three-storey GP surgeries capable of serving more than 17,500 patients, a pharmacy, office space and ground floor parking.
Gloucestershire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group plans to replace the Gloucester City Health Centre at Rikenel and Gloucester Health Access Centre in Eastgate Street.
The scheme is the next step in the regeneration of the Quays and Blackfriars area of the city and follows Kier's work in recladding the nearby Shire Hall, extending the company's working relationship with Gloucestershire County Council.
Andy Bolas, operations director for Kier in Gloucester, said: "This builds on our existing relationship working on the Gloucestershire County Council Framework where we have successfully completed more than 50 projects in the past 15 years."
