East Midlands-based civil and structural engineering company BSP Consulting has been appointed as part of the team building a new £14 million hospital.
The firm is currently helping Cygnet Health Care to build a £9.8 million, 56-bed mental health hospital in Coventry. 
Now BSP has also been appointed as the civil and structural engineer for a £14 million, 65-bed hospital due to be built by Cygnet Health Care in Kent. Cygnet Hospital Maidstone will be located on a two-acre plot at the proposed Kent Medical Campus on Bearsted Road, Maidstone.
Work is due to get underway on site late September, with the first admissions to the new hospital expected in January 2018.
BSP Consulting engineers have undertaken the full civil and structural design for the scheme, which will feature three principal wards, plus eight individual step-down flats, together with therapeutic, clinical and recreational facilities, and ancillary/support accommodation. These will be set within a building floor plan totalling 5,300 square metres and constructed over three levels.
BSP director Carl Hilton said: “We are excited about being involved directly for the client on this hospital project as it is a sector in which we have significant strength and had identified for expansion. The site is one of the first significant medical park developments to occur in the UK, and is therefore a high-profile development.
“It is the latest in a number of Cygnet healthcare projects that BSP has been involved in, and is an endorsement of the civil and structural engineering services that BSP provides.”
London-based Tangram Architects is architect for both the Coventry and Maidstone schemes. 
BSP, based in Oxford Street, Nottingham, and with offices in Derby and Leicester, offers civil, structural, traffic, transportation, geotechnical and environmental engineering services across the construction industry.
