About us

Integrated Health Projects (IHP) is a leading provider of outstanding healthcare solutions.

An integrated joint venture between two of the most stable and established names in the UK and international construction industry, VINCI Building and Sir Robert McAlpine, IHP was formed in April 2003 specifically to focus on delivery of healthcare projects. (VINCI Building is a trading name of the building business of VINCI Construction UK Limited.)

We are proud of our continuous role on all 3 of the ProCure Frameworks since 2003 and we are also delivering under the NHS Building for Wales framework. IHP key numbers:

  • Projects we have been appointed on – 258
  • Total value of these Projects – circa £3.7bn
  • Number of NHS and LA Clients – 90+
  • Repeat appointment Projects – 84%

Along with the formidable cover and security provide by each of the joint venture partners IHP offers a comprehensive development, design, construction and facilities management service.

We have an impressive track record in the development and delivery of a wide range of award-winning healthcare projects from “barn” operating theatres at Liverpool’s Broadgreen Hospital, The Harbour MH facility in Blackpool to the fast track redevelopment of Chase Farm Hospital.

IHP were honoured to have been called upon to support the NHS in the COVID-19 national crisis. We delivered a number of emergency projects including the 750 bed Manchester Nightingale Hospital in just 13 days!

We are committed to achieving the benefits available to Clients through ProCure 22, working together to provide better value for money through imaginative and sustainable solutions which offer capital, operational and life-term efficiencies.

As well as a fully integrated named supply chain experienced in all facets of healthcare, we bring to every project the technical expertise, robust cost control and programme management skills needed to safely deliver good value, high quality facilities on time and within budget.

While we aim for excellence in design and construction, we recognise that a build solution may not always be the answer. Whatever the requirements, on every project we aim to work in partnership with our Clients to develop innovative and forward-thinking solutions which will meet their service provision and business needs long into the future.
