Mott MacDonald has been named lenders’ technical and environmental advisor by Bilkent Ankara Entegre Saglik Hizmetleri Yatirim Ve Isletme Anonim Sirketi on the Ankara Bilkent Integrated Health Campus development in Turkey. The consultancy will also provide construction and operational monitoring services for subsequent phases of the project.
The Ankara Bilkent Integrated Health Campus will have a total capacity of 3,662 beds. It will include; a general hospital (562 beds), a women’s hospital (574 beds), a children’s hospital (514 beds), a cardiovascular surgery hospital (425 beds), a oncology hospital (557 beds), a neurological science and orthopaedics hospital (412 beds) and a physical therapy & rehabilitation hospital (300 beds), as well as a psychiatric hospital (198 beds), a high-security forensic psychiatric hospital (100 beds), a burns unit (20 beds) and a diagnosis and treatment centre. Other facilities available on the campus include a technical services building, a clinic hotel and a new main administrative centre for the Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Health.
Mott MacDonald will undertake due diligence on behalf of the lenders to assess the capabilities and experience of the consortium stakeholders as well as the consortium’s design, planning and construction, facilities and lifecycle management proposals. The consultancy will also ensure that the contractual arrangements and agreed risk allocation are in line with international PPP best practice standards and the lenders’ specific requirements.
John Seed, Mott MacDonald’s project director said: “This is Mott MacDonald’s third technical and environmental advisory project in Turkey and demonstrates our continued commitment to improving healthcare in the country. The Ankara Bilkent Health Campus will deliver a patient-centred increase in capacity and offer first-class facilities and equipment, integrated on one site, which will provide significant benefits for the Turkish population.”
Burak Sencer, Mott MacDonald’s country representative in Turkey, added: “This project forms part of a wider PPP programme in Turkey to deliver the Ministry of Health’s vision of a modern and efficient health infrastructure. This involves the development of approximately 30 new healthcare facilities with a total capacity of over 26,000 beds and total investment cost in excess of US$10 billion.”
Financial close for the project is due to be reached by summer 2013, with construction of the facility taking an estimated three and a half years. Once completed, the campus will then enter a 25-year operational phase.
